This IDC study (a translation of the Japanese document IDC #J15120181) sums up the market trends, product and solution trends, vendor and channel trends, and the business climate for user companies in the Japan small- and medium-sized business (SMB) IT market in 2015.

Hitoshi Ichimura, IDC Japan's IT spending research manager, argues: "In 2015, the Japan SMB IT market will have a low rate of growth, remaining nearly flat. However, I believe that many SMBs will increase their IT spending for reasons including compliance with the 'My Number' system and the end of support for Windows Server 2003. Vendors should see these developments as opportunities and aggressively propose IT solutions that can contribute to resolving problems that company management faces."
