India IT Services 2013 Analysis and 2014–2018 Forecast
This IDC study contains data and analysis of the IT services market in India. It summarizes the major impacts indicated by IDC's qualitative and quantitative surveys conducted in 1H13 and 2H13, and presents forecasts for IDC foundation market categories and IT services spending. The study answers the following questions:
What are IDC's forecasts for spending on IT services in India? What are the assumptions behind IDC's forecast numbers? What impact will these assumptions have on market forecasts?
What are demand-side perspectives regarding IT services procurement?
What are the latest trends in IT services delivery in India, such as managed services and outsourcing?
"Demand for IT services in India is driven by an increased adoption of newer technologies such as cloud computing, mobility, and analytics, which will lead the companies to hire IT consultants to prepare detailed strategies and road maps for the implementation of these technologies. As the adoption of 3rd Platform technologies such as cloud, mobility, and analytics picks up in the India market, it will drive the growth in IT services spend as well. The 3rd Platform technologies will change the way services are delivered and consumed and will have an impact on the overall value chain. Although IT services spending will increase in absolute dollar terms, in the long run, wallet share will shift from vanilla services to these solution-oriented services," says Sachin Chaturvedi, senior market analyst, IT Services, IDC India.
