Japan Big Data Technologies and Services Forecast, 2017−2021
This IDC study provides results for the Japan Big Data and analytics (BDA) technologies and services market in 2016 and a forecast for the same market from 2017 to 2021. Separate forecasts and analyses of results are presented for each of the three market segments (infrastructure, services, and software), along with an analysis of the Big Data technologies and services market (a subsegment of the BDA technologies and services market)."In the Japan market, there is a trend toward shortages in resources such as developers and engineers who can use BDA technologies in user companies. IDC predicts that the trend of user companies relying on IT suppliers will continue, much as it did for conventional systems integration. In order to adequately support efforts toward DX in enterprise in Japan, IT suppliers will need to deploy resources for the development and delivery of services that meet the growing need for BDA services," said Shintaro Kusachi, market analyst, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
