This IDC study provides a detailed description of IDC's services market taxonomy. For 2015, the taxonomy includes individual foundation markets grouped within three primary market segments: project oriented, outsourcing, and support and training. At the worldwide level, spending is also segmented across three geographic macroregions: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and Asia/Pacific. These macroregions are further segmented at the regional and local levels.
IDC's services market taxonomy is the basis for IDC services research studies, trackers, and forecasters worldwide, as well as the relational multidimensional schema of IDC's Services Market Forecaster database that feeds worldwide and regional vendor trackers.
"IDC's services taxonomy presents a comprehensive and standardized view of the worldwide services marketplace," said Chad Huston, senior analyst, Global Services Markets and Trends. "It continues to be the premier source for defining and categorizing external IT and business services."
