...more about the IT industry
The IT services market in South Africa has seen a healthy uptake, growing at about 8% year on year in 2010 to contribute more than a third of the total IT spending in the country. Market research and advisory company IDC expects the IT services market to exceed $5-billion (R40-billion) in 2012. "The growth in IT services' spending was driven by a recovering economy, increased business confidence, expanding bandwidth availability, and various infrastructure investments made in the country in 2010."
In a recent research report, IDC cited that IT outsourcing constituted around 40% of the South African IT services market, which represents the largest market share of all IT services foundation markets, followed by systems integration and installation and support services. According to IDC, services such as network and desktop outsourcing and infrastructure hosting saw an increased uptake in 2010, fuelled by the incremental supply of data centre space and increased customer awareness of the managed services model.
IDC forecasts the total South African IT services market to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 8,7% to exceed $17-billion (about R136-billion) in 2015. Looking ahead, IDC expects a continued spending focus among end-user organizations on areas and solutions that help reduce operating expenses while increasing efficiency. As a result of continued price pressures and the need to improve client service, vendors are advised to pursue alternative service delivery models, such as cloud services.
