Digital disruptors such as Alibaba, Tencent, Amazon, and Airbnb are emerging across sectors and challenging incumbents with their lean digital operations and new business models. The combination of these factors is forcing organizations to further wire-up processes and assets with sensors and new devices and technologies such as artificial intelligence, wearable computing, and AR/VR. Leading organizations are already testing smartwatches, AI, and AR/VR applications to enable real-time information access and visualization, automation, hands-free computing, and for trainings. </P><P>Although these initiatives are helping shape the future workplace and deliver better productivity and visibility into operations for enterprises, it is also increasing the diversity of devices and operating systems to manage, creating unprecedented complexities for IT teams. Enterprise IT organizations and business teams will need to anticipate the continued transformation of the workplace to ensure a seamless transition.</P><P>This IDC presentation discusses the APEJ implications for the <I>Worldwide Connected Devices and AR/VR 2018 Predictions</I>.

By mainstream, IDC means the broad middle of the bell curve of adoption (i.e., the 40–60% of enterprises that are neither the first movers and early adopters nor the last to act).</P> Tech Buyer Presentation Fri, 17 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT Avinav Trigunait, Bryan Ma, Kenneth Liew IDC's New Zealand IT Services Ecosystem 2017 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=AP43200217 <P>This IDC Presentation provides a comprehensive insight into the dynamics that are currently shaping the IT services market in New Zealand based on the findings of IDC's New Zealand IT Services Survey with a sample size of 300 respondents.</P><P>As technology is becoming more pervasive across the organisation, C-suite executives are becoming more prepared to participate in its application and, most importantly, its prioritisation. This is important as it represents an evolution to a more agile mode of operations. With over 70% of organisations having a level of involvement in developing a technology strategy, there is a shift to the development of an organisation's digital leadership programme, which challenges the traditional functional role-based structure (sales, finance, and so forth) to something that is more aligned with the areas of omni-/customer experience, operational excellence, information integration, and worksource optimisation.</P><P>Hybrid is the key investment theme from a technology perspective (on- to off-premise, off-premise into public cloud, and platforms for orchestrating across the environment). Collaboration has the highest overall intent for organisations to invest in, but there is a notable shift towards business automation as opposed to more communication- or content-based investments.</P> Market Presentation Fri, 17 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT Adam Dodds, Donnie Krassiyenko “New Retail” Casting a Wider Physical Footprint in China: Online to Offline Integration Key Focus of Singles’ Day 2017 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prAP43216517 SINGAPORE, November 17th, 2017 - China's Singles' Day has grown beyond a Chinese online sales campaign into an international, omni-channel, retail-as-entertainment festival. This year, we saw an extension of the "New Retail" into a wider physical footprint. The festival has become a significant event – China digital natives are now leading the way with new forms of retail such as "retail-tainment", while flexing its economic and commercial influence outside China. Singles' Day has also become an international affair in many ways. For example, Lazada Thailand mirrored Alibaba's Singles' Day practice to host a massive televised gala with celebrities counting down until the shopping deals began at midnight.

As the smart home ecosystem evolves and becomes more complex over time with more devices and services, being able to learn about and experience these solutions firsthand will be an increasingly important part of consumers' purchasing decisions, and successful IoT vendors will be the ones that show consumers the ways in which their devices can work together to bring about personalized and automated smart home experiences. Moreover, this partnership addresses the desire of consumers, even those that are ready for transformative technologies, to be assisted by knowledgeable salespeople in retail settings. This partnership should serve as a model to drive adoption of future digital-living technologies.</P> IDC Link Wed, 15 Nov 2017 05:00:00 GMT Adam Wright, Greg Ireland SAP Hybris LIVE: Global Summit Underscores Key Role of eCommerce in Digital Transformation and Customer Experience http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=US43203217 <P>This IDC Perspective highlights the most important takeaways from SAP Hybris' user summit held October 17–19, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain, and includes analysis of key trends, products, and road maps.</P><P>Gerry Murray, research director of IDC's Sales and Marketing Technology research, stated, "Customer experience is the new organizing principle for brands.
