"In the mobile Internet and big data era, telecom operators will face a more complicated industry environment. Since the operators' closed value-added service system market was opened, over-the-top services have had further impact on operators' traditional cash-flow services such as SMS and voice messages. With the opening of mobile services and the deepening of government and enterprise informatization, competition in the industry will shift to competition and cooperation among industries, and telecom operators' transformation strategies and development paths will be subject to further review and adjustment. As business innovation faces many uncertainties with the centralized management of the smart pipe, network traffic operation, capability expansion, and cloud-based resources, IT investment capable of improving the operators' basic competence and operation efficiency will maintain rapid but stable growth. The IT investment of the telecom industry in 2012 reached RMB 43.98 billion, and the telecom industry IT solution market reached RMB 13.87 billion. According to IDC's forecast, this market will reach RMB 22.76 billion by 2017," says Jialin Jiang, senior analyst, Vertical Industry Research and Consulting, IDC China.
