Japan IT Infrastructure Services Forecast, 2016−2020
This IDC study analyzes the design and implementation, operation management, and maintenance services of the Japan infrastructure market quantitatively, and provides the performance results for 2015 and the market forecast from 2016 to 2020 in terms of the four segments, namely, IT infrastructure consulting and integration, IT infrastructure outsourcing, IT infrastructure support services, and IT infrastructure security services. Although hybrid cloud is becoming common among enterprise IT infrastructure, cases related to global correspondence are also on the rise. This increasingly sophisticated IT infrastructure has become a huge burden for enterprises. "In order to free the enterprises from the burden of costs and resources for their IT infrastructure, assuming most of the cases are in hybrid cloud, IT service vendors should provide support to the enterprises so that they can concentrate on their main business as much as possible," says Seiichiro Yoshii, senior market analyst, IT Services, IDC Japan.
