rssservices IDC RSS alerts Cognizant Europe 2017: Strong Growth in Digital and Continued Growth in Traditional Services <P>Cognizant announced its 4Q17 and full year 2017 results on February 7, 2018. Its 2017 revenues reached $14.81 billion, for growth of 9.8% over 2016. 4Q performed slightly better with growth of 10.6% over the previous year. In Europe, 2017 revenues reached $2.398 billion, with growth of 11.8% in dollar terms. 4Q saw even stronger growth in Europe: 18.1% in dollar terms and 11.7% in constant currency. Europe accounts for 16.2% of the total revenue, a low share compared to Wipro or TCS.</P><P>There was an interesting shift in Europe in 2017: while the U.K. only grew by an estimated 2.8% in constant currency (declining in dollars), Continental Europe grew by 28.8% in dollars, which in our estimate equals 26.7% in constant currency. This led to revenue from Continental Europe for the first time exceeding that of the U.K. — Continental Europe in 2017 contributed 52% of the European revenue. Part of the growth in Continental Europe results from acquisitions (Frontica, Mirabeau, and KIS in late 2016), while the 2017 acquisitions of Netcentric and Zone didn't contribute significantly to the revenue growth in 2017.</P><P>From an industry perspective, communications, media, and technology saw the best growth — in total 17.7% globally — followed by products and resources (14.3% growth) and healthcare and financial services (10.1% and 5.0% growth respectively). Interestingly, looking by size of revenues from the verticals, the order is the exact opposite, with financial services the largest followed by healthcare, products, and resources, and finally communications, media, and technology. As a consequence, the value growth is the largest in healthcare, whereas financial services and products and resources saw very similar value growth, and communications, media, and technology much smaller value growth as it was from a small base. Healthcare, which was suffering in 2015, saw a strong increase based on an IP-oriented approach coming from previous acquisitions of U.S.-based TriZetto and TMG. The impact in Europe is still limited. </P> IDC Link Tue, 20 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT Mette Ahorlu, Gary Duncan 2018年 国内インダストリークラウド市場動向:ビジネスモデル/ユースケース分析 <P>本調査レポートでは、国内市場におけるインダストリークラウド(IC)の動向について、そのビジネスモデルおよびユースケースに着目して分析を行っている。</P><P>国内市場では現状、草創期にあるICの市場であるが、今後数年間でそのユースケースが増加、拡大し、サービスプロバイダーのビジネスモデルが徐々に確立することで大幅な市場成長を遂げるとIDCではみている。「サービスプロバイダーは、ICを既存IT市場の枠外における新たな収益化の手段として捉え、新たな収益化手段においてテクノロジーの活用能力だけではなく、自社の強みや特徴がどのように生かせるのかを再定義する必要がある」とIDC Japan ITサービスのシニアマーケットアナリストである植村 卓弥は述べている。</P> Market Perspective Mon, 19 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT Takuya Uemura First-Ever IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Professional Services Firms for Mining Operational Process Optimization 2018 Vendor Assessment SINGAPORE, February 20th, 2018 - IDC Asia/Pacific just released its first-ever IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Professional Services Firms for Mining Operational Process Optimization 2018 Vendor Assessment , where Accenture, Deloitte, and IBM were named to the Leaders category.

The new era will be marked by banks' preference for a platform-based, componentized, and open API-enabled core banking systems. This will support banks' intentions to be as digital as possible. This report also highlights the propositions of four software providers that can support this drive toward banks' digital core. </P><P>Michael Araneta, AVP for IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific comments, "Across many years of research on core banking transformations, we have always recognized core banking modernization for their significant pull-through — they inevitably cause an increase in IT spending in other noncore areas. The pull-through becomes stronger this time around as the organization will have to skill up in many areas, such as information architecture discipline, knowledge on open API frameworks, and competencies in iterative development. All these make core banking modernization truly transformative."</P><P>"Banks now will have to assess how transformation of their core system will be a key part of their overall transformation. The decision will most likely be to not decommission the old core system and replace it with a new one but rather to abstract as much business logic from their current core and iteratively improve digital capabilities around that core," adds Sneha Kapoor, senior research manager, IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific.</P> IDC Perspective Mon, 19 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT Michael Araneta, Sneha Kapoor, Jerry Silva Worldwide Cloud IT Infrastructure Hardware Spending Forecast, 2017–2021 <P>This IDC study provides an aggregated worldwide forecast for spending on cloud IT infrastructure hardware (server, storage systems, and network devices across public and private clouds as well as traditional IT environments). This document also assesses the impact of cloud (public and hosted private) on the location (on-premise versus off-premise) and ownership of IT infrastructure in the next five years. For detailed information on spending for each segment (server, storage, and network) and within each region, refer to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker and Forecast data set with double counting of storage for internal server storage removed.</P><P>"As adoption of public cloud services and private cloud deployments continues to spread around the world replacing traditional on-premise hardware-centric IT settings, overall market spending on servers, storage, and networking will follow this move. The industry is getting closer to the point when cloud deployments will account for a majority of spending on IT infrastructure, which will be a major milestone embracing the benefits of service-centric IT." — Natalya Yezhkova, research director, Enterprise Storage</P> Market Forecast Mon, 19 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT Richard L.

Despite management upheaval in 2H17, Infosys had a decent-but-not-great calendar year 2017. The company now has a new CEO who has the opportunity to build on some real and important achievements of his predecessor while likely adding a stronger focus on engaging with the "business" side of clients — for example, with a strengthened Infosys Digital and stronger business-consulting capabilities.</P> Market Note Fri, 16 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT Douglas Hayward, Michael Versace Workforce Development and Sourcing a Very Important Business Priority for More Than a Quarter of European Organizations <P>The document contains data from IDC's <I>European Vertical Markets </I><I>Survey 2017</I><I>,</I> which involved 1,967 companies with more than 10 employees in over 85% of the European economy (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Nordics, the U.K., and the Netherlands).
