The dramatic force of change, driven by COVID-19, and the resulting mass migration of workers, students, and others to a home-based existence is unprecedented. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted enterprises to mobilize around work from home (WFH) to slow the virus' spread, care for employee well-being, and ensure business continuity. The passage of time has given us the benefit of data and information.</P><P>"The COVID-19 pandemic is not just another crisis; it has fundamentally changed the manner in which work is done, the IT systems that enable that work, and security measures that support both. The importance of time to value, the advantage of incumbent vendors, and the acceleration of the movement to the cloud are among the key security themes of note," according to Frank Dickson, program vice president, Security and Trust.</P> Market Perspective Mon, 12 Oct 2020 04:00:00 GMT Frank Dickson, Christopher Rodriguez, Ryan O’Leary, Mike Jude, Christopher Kissel, Pete Finalle, Jay Bretzmann, Michael Suby rsssmb <P>本調査レポートは、国内IT市場の中でも企業部門のチャネル利用状況や動向を調査、分析してまとめたものである。2020年2月に実施したユーザー調査、および販売チャネルなどにおけるヒヤリング調査の結果から、サーバー、PC、ソフトウェアにおける国内企業の販売チャネルの利用動向に関して分析を行った。さらに、本調査レポートでは企業分野におけるデバイス、インフラストラクチャ、ソフトウェアの販売チャネル別でのIT支出規模、および主な販売チャネルの概況の提供を併せて行っている。</P><P>国内IT市場では、COVID-19の影響による経済状況の悪化によって各販売チャネル分野で大幅に減速している。特に「ベンダー(営業担当者)」「販売代理店」「SIer」では感染防止を目的に直接販売が困難となっていることから、さらに影響は深刻となっている。その一方で、在宅勤務の拡大によってリモートアクセス関連ソリューション、クラウドソリューション、PCなどの需要が拡大していることから、積極的に取り扱う一部の「SIer」または感染リスクの少ない「ベンダー(Web/電話経由)」では、他の販売チャネルよりも落ち幅は小さいとみている。</P><P>IDC Japan ITスペンディンググループのリサーチマネージャーである市村 仁は「ITサプライヤーは、COVID-19による影響を軽減し、新たなビジネス機会を捉えるために「新しい日常」を踏まえた営業体制、取り扱い商材の見直しを図るべきである」と述べている。</P> Market Perspective Tue, 06 Oct 2020 04:00:00 GMT Hitoshi Ichimura rsssmb <P>本調査レポートはクロスインダストリーを取り上げ、産業間の連携を促進する場と、既存業種から異業種への参入という2つの側面について考察を行っている。これまで新たな技術の登場や社会構造および環境変化に伴い、産業構造は変革を繰り返してきたが、新たな技術が産業と結び付くX-Techやいくつかの企業におけるDXを活用した変革事例を説明している。IDCのユーザー調査では、全体の約3分の2の企業が異業種との提携を行っていないか、積極的ではないという結果になっており、今後異業種間連携や異業種への参入というクロスインダストリーへの取り組みの余地が大きいことが分かる。企業がそれぞれの強みを生かし環境変化に迅速に対応していくために、ある産業で強化された技術が異なる産業においても活用されるというX-TechやIDCが定義するFuture of Industryにおけるソフトウェアプラットフォーム(SWPF)を活用し、新たなエコシステムを構築していくことが重要であると考える。このような状況の中、「ITサプライヤーは、個別のサービスから進化するボトムアップ型のソフトウェアプラットフォーム(SWPF)のインテグレーションに加えて、公共と民間サービスのクロスインダストリーを活性化し、社会変革をリードするようなトップダウン型のSWPFを推進すべきである」と、IDC Japan ITスペンディンググループのグループマネージャーである村西 明は述べている。</P> Market Perspective Thu, 01 Oct 2020 04:00:00 GMT Akira Muranishi rsssmb <P>This IDC Perspective discusses how COVID-19 is accelerating transformation of the global banking industry. Although the banking industry is better able to monitor and plan for loan losses arising from the market disruption that took place in 2008, it is a mistake to believe that the scale of economic fallout won't affect the institution's ability to recover and survive the current pandemic. Nevertheless, IDC believes that the pace of IT spending in the global banking industry will accelerate in 2021, bringing spending growth back to 5.9% annually and led by a focus on resiliency as a founding principle of digital transformation in the future enterprise.</P><P>"In a perverse way, the economic crisis of 2008 helped prepare the banking industry to weather some of the impacts of the 2020 pandemic," said Jerry Silva, program vice president, IDC Financial Insights. "Nonetheless, the impacts to areas such as security, lending, and digital experiences, and the overall need to improve resiliency will drive an acceleration of transformation investments that will quickly bring the industry back to better-than-pre-COVID-19 levels.</P> IDC Perspective Wed, 30 Sep 2020 04:00:00 GMT Jerry Silva rsssmb <P>This IDC Market Presentation analyzes the importance of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and their position in Europe.

This research examines both the adoption intentions and the drivers and inhibitors cited by SMBs as they explore deployment options in the next 12-18 months.</P><P>According to Shari Lava, research director, SMB, "Within the next 12 months, there will be no discernable difference between the number of digitally determined and digitally distraught SMBs that are adopting public cloud infrastructure in their environments, only the amount of spend will vary. Most medium-sized profiles will be adopting more and from a wider selection of vendors."</P> Market Analysis Perspective Mon, 28 Sep 2020 04:00:00 GMT Shari Lava rsssmb <P>This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights the shifting expectations, and the factors driving those expectations, around enterprise spending on 5G as the emerging "next normal" coalesces and drives shifts in business operations and digital transformation.
