Vietnam ICT 2015 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC study discusses the factors that will have the biggest impact across the Vietnam ICT market in 2015. The market has become more challenging in such unfavourable economic times in Vietnam than before, coupled with the changing appetite of consumers and businesses. IDC sees a fairly traditional economy moving toward one that is technology-laden, where an organization scales up technology's contribution into the bottom line of the organization.

"The year 2015 will be an important year for the Vietnam ICT market. With the full opening of Vietnam's distribution industry as a WTO commitment as well as its integration into AEC, Vietnam will see a new transition in the ICT Vietnam market with the growing impact of connected devices, Big Data, cloud, and IoT. Harnessing 3rd Platform technologies would be the key adoption step that can help Vietnam institutions, enterprises, and SMBs alike to stay ahead of new market disruptors and the competition curve," says Lam Nguyen, Country Manager, IDC Vietnam.
