Food For Thought....

"It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after a committee of sleep has worked on it."

John Steinbeck

From a market point of view, the beginning of 2014 has seen increased uncertainty in the Asia Pacific region. Whilst the overall Asia Pacific economic environment is comparatively sound, it is dampened by factors such as political instability in Thailand, and a marked decline in business confidence and manufacturing and semi-skilled jobs in Australia.

Technology wise, as highlighted by capioIT in various forums, we have advanced our view on the nature of cloud investments. We can now confidently state that cloud investments and growth for many organizations is a real revolution. Whilst we tend not to look for, or create overhype in the market increasingly an “evolution” philosophy towards cloud is like trying to drive a car by looking through the rear view mirror. Recent discussions with CEO’s have illustrated their desire to accelerate investment in cloud based services. To paraphrase a mining CEO; “If the CFO and CIO don’t transform quickly enough toward cloud, they can collect their severance from HR on the way out the door”

In 2014 to date, vendors have been relatively quiet in the market. We have seen the transition of Satya Nadella at Microsoft as the new CEO. The real impact of this will be felt as we rocket through 2014. IBM has continued to divest assets that it no longer considers core and invest in emerging technologies such as Watson. IBM is increasingly a hardware free organization. At the same time, Lenovo has taken the exact opposite view on the market acquiring hardware from both IBM and Google.  

Thanks for taking the time to read our first newsletter. We have linked to some of our key content for the month. Let us know if there is any way we can support you and your business requirements, and please provide us with feedback on the newsletter.

Our Latest and Greatest....

capioIT announces Leadership in the Asia Pacific BI and Analytics Platform Marketplace

capioIT has released the 2014 Asia Pacific BI and Analytics Platform Marketplace Capture Share Report. This extensively researched report supports Asia Pacific technology buyers by evaluating the key strengths and weaknesses of 14 prominent emerging BI and Analytics Platform providers in the Asia Pacific region.

According to capioIT CEO Phil Hassey; “The acceleration in demand by organisations for the ability to identify, manage and understand their business information is as strong in the Asia Pacific region as it is anywhere globally. To quantify the significant opportunity in the Asia Pacific BI and Analytics market, capioIT forecasts that the Asia Pacific BI and Analytics software marketplace will grow to US$3.26 Billion in 2017, representing a CAGR of 16.4% from 2012 through 2017. All countries will experience a CAGR in excess of 10%, with Vietnam leading the way with a CAGR of 24%.


Chinese Tier 2 and 3 cities need to do a much better job to promote foreign investment

I have visited China for business repeatedly over the last 15 years. As most would be more than aware, the growth on any econometric variable has been sustained and typically staggering. As someone who studied economic and regional development as an undergrad student the demographics of China is equally of interest and impressive.

The size and scale of cities and metropolitan areas in China is staggering. It has 15 cities with over five million residents and approximately 140 more with over a million residents. It is a market and level of potential consumers that any other country (particularly one like my home country of Australia) can only dream of.



capioIT forecasts that the ANZ BI and Analytics Software Market will reach A$953M by 2017

capioIT has forecast that the Australian and New Zealand BI and Analytics software market will reach Aust $953M by 2017. In 2012, the market was estimated to be A$524M. This will represent a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.7% from 2012-2017.

As highlighted Australia is the most significant part of the market. In 2012, Australia represented 85.9% of the market. In 2017, Australia represented 86.1%. Whilst on the surface, the ANZ BI and Analytics market looks relatively stable, there is significant level of disruption and change in the market.
