Japan IT Services for the 3rd Platform Forecast, 2017−2021
This IDC study compiles the results from the IT services for the 3rd Platform market for 2016, as well as forecasts for that market for 2017–2021, broken down into four major technology segments for which services are sold (cloud, business analytics [BA], enterprise mobility, and social business). All four segments in the Japan IT services for the 3rd Platform market continue to grow at a high rate, with the IT services for cloud market propelling the market in scale in growth. Toward the second half of the forecast period (2020–2021), the number of projects being implemented and administered that combines the 3rd Platform or digital technologies, such as innovation accelerators including the Internet of Things (IoT) that utilizes the 3rd Platform or cognitive and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, will grow in order to realize DX. "IT service vendors are currently building organizations to support digital transformation (DX) in combination with each technology component, changing traditional organizations in which the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators are developed separately. However, transitioning from the current situation optimized for the 2nd Platform will not be easy. With that in mind, building such frameworks that include rating systems and human resource development will be an important first step for DX implementation services, toward achieving growth in the IT services for the 3rd Platform market," said Takuya Uemura, senior market analyst, IT Services, IDC Japan.
