This IDC report analyzes the trends of the Japan IT services market and summarizes the IT services spending by segment (18 by subindustry, three by service segment, and six by broad industry). Market sizes and the respective growth rates are forecast for each market segment from 2014 to 2019. IDC also provides recommendations for service vendors.The Japan IT services market has achieved a high growth rate in 2014 that was similar to that in 2007 before the global financial crisis. In particular, buoyant investments for systems development came mainly from the financial services industry and government/public sector for the whole of 2014 and the project-oriented segment achieved very high growth. The Japan IT services market will continue growing from 2015 onward but a shift from the 2nd Platform (the current market propeller) to the 3rd Platform (new growth driver) will also occur. "To survive the 3rd Platform, innovative changes are required in various aspects. Vendors should forget about past successes and focus on creating a new business model by redefining their services, customers, and own skills," says Yukiharu Yorifuji, group director, IDC Japan.This IDC study is a translation of the Japan document IDC #J15320107 and is summarized to reduce the gap in time since the original version was published.All of the following sections are, however, fully translated:IDC OpinionMethodologyExecutive SummaryEssential GuidanceSynopsisDefinition
