Japan Enterprise Applications Software 2015-2019 Forecast and 2014 Analysis
This IDC study looks at 2014 revenue results and vendor shares in the Japan enterprise applications (EA) market, which consists of enterprise resource management (ERM), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM), and manufacturing management applications. It also provides forecast for the market for the period from 2015 to 2019.
The EA software market is highly mature. However, it is a relatively stable market in which tax and legislative compliance and the visualization of management indicators, among other factors, mean that there is always replacement demand. Factors behind the expansion of this market include companies' shifts from the Japanese market to markets overseas (which is due to the contraction of the domestic market and concerns about labor shortages resulting from a low birth rate and aging society) and spending in new domains, such as data analysis that helps companies receive concrete results from their growth strategies, as well as talent management. "When launching businesses overseas, it is crucial to improve competitiveness through the pursuit of the ability to act in real-time and the analysis of data. Companies should move away from meeting the needs of their particular businesses through the full customization of existing systems and actively use products and services from the vendors and providers that deliver the latest technologies. Systems integrators should strengthen partnerships with consulting firms to ensure access to new revenue sources that require specialist knowledge," argues IDC Japan software and security market analyst Yoko Motai.
