This IDC study provides a detailed overview of the top 10 themes that IDC expects will affect the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) software markets in 2013. IDC believes these trends will have the greatest commercial impact on the overall software market in the region. IDC's predictions draw on our latest research and analysis across MENA, as well as on key industry events, user trends, vendor strategies, and economic measures.
"In 2013, the IT infrastructure of companies in MENA will begin to evolve as they realize the benefits of disruptive technologies such as those around mobility, business analytics, social, and cloud and increasingly adopt software solutions that help them automate, manage, and support the adoption of these technologies while addressing the need to remain compliant and secure. Software spending will be relatively robust as postponed mega projects in the region are revived and new ones launched, despite global economic headwinds" – Research Manager Megha Kumar, IDC Middle East, Africa, and Turkey.
