Worldwide and U.S. Systems Integration Services Forecast Update, 2015–2019
This IDC study presents IDC's worldwide and U.S. IT systems integration market by major regions. A historical sizing and forecast are provided, beginning in 2012 and extending through 2019. The total worldwide market is assessed. A range of forecast assumptions are factored in. This study does not contain vendor-specific revenue, market shares, or vendor profiles."With Europe again under economic instability and buyers in most mature and emerging markets still in cautionary spending mode, global SI services spending is expected to further dip in 2015. Businesses will continue to focus on improving business processes and maximizing efficiencies along with lowering costs. These and other drivers such as merger and acquisition (M&A) activities will continue to drive the demand for consolidation projects across application, platform, and infrastructure. In addition, the demand for digitization is generating huge focus on SI projects across the 3rd Platform, and the transformational projects will mainly be carried out around 3rd Platform technology and less so around traditional technology," said Ali Zaidi, research manager, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Strategies.
