Asia Pacific ICT businesses to grow in 2011, says IDC

ICT companies in the Asia Pacific will experience sustainable growth - and, in some cases, high growth - according to IDC’s predictions for 2011.

“Most companies across all sectors are now faced with increased competition for their products and services and IDC expects the trend to continue in the next few years. IDC also believes that customer centricity initiatives will become a priority in emerging markets in 2011 and beyond,” said Claus Mortensen, principal for emerging technology research, Practice Group, IDC Asia/Pacific.

According to IDC, 2011 will be another year of strong growth for the region. The People’s Republic of China (PRC), India, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines are projected to generate the strongest IT spending rise in 2011.

Changes in the collaboration market due to “socialytic applications” are at the top of IDC’s predictions for the year ahead. “IDC predicts that 2011 will be the year where the trend of combining social media with business analytics will make its mark across most of the key enterprise applications in use today,” said the experts.

Mobility will also play a very important part in the transformation of IT in 2011, with tablets and large-screen smartphones now running almost fully functional versions of all enterprise software and services.

Additionally, virtualisation and cloud computing will continue playing a vital part in IT.

After extensive studies and reviews to weight in on key industry events, trends and vendor strategies, here are IDC’s top 10 predictions for Asian Pacific ICT businesses in 2011:

1. Socialytic applications will transform the collaboration market

2. Mobilution - mobility will make a leap into IT

3. "Less for Less" -- self-service customer portals will spearhead low-cost customer centricity

4. Analytics will accelerate the chase for Asian consumption

5. Apple's iPad will catalyse interest in client virtualization

6. Services and federation will lead "enterprise-class" cloud deployments

7. Smart enterprises will adopt catalog-based IT

8. Business-as-a-Service: the answer to IT-business integration?

9. Telecom services providers will return to IT

10. Telecom service providers will look to cloud computing for operations
