This IDC study qualitatively and quantitatively analyzes and summarizes the competitive landscape among vendors in the Japan IT services market based on surveys conducted on major service vendors, as well as information gathered from various resources. This study also estimates the major vendors' revenue in the Japan IT services market for 2015 and FY15 according to the three service segments and six industry segments based on IDC's definition. Furthermore, this study also describes the business trends of each vendor as vendor profile.Continuing from the previous year, the Japan IT services market achieved outstanding performance in 2015 (year ending December 2015) in which out of leading market vendors, 15 of them earned more than 100 billion yen in revenue and 13 of them achieved positive growth. Many vendors increased their project-oriented revenue because of reconstruction/integration projects for mission-critical systems in financial institutions. Meanwhile, IDC predicts that from 2H16, traditional large projects focusing on the 2nd Platform that have been supporting growth for the past two years will peak out.Leading vendors are aiming for "optimization for DX support," which will create new business values among their initiatives, such as restructuring of organizational frameworks, personnel training, cocreation and open innovation, and combining with the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators. Nevertheless, changing business models that have been successful in the 2nd Platform is extremely difficult due to the success itself, particularly for leading vendors. "Lack of speed" in particular, is becoming a major limitation. "Vendors must focus on the optimization for DX support as a top priority management issue and must engage themselves in this effort as it is something essential, more than improving productivity of businesses for the 2nd Platform," says Takuya Uemura, IT services senior analyst, IDC Japan.
