Summary
Why was the report written? To highlight the criteria on which Australian enterprises select their ICT providers as well as the roles which have influence while making ICT purchasing decisions. What is the current market landscape and what is changing? Australian enterprises are expecting growth in their ICT spending in 2013 and their preference towards hosted services is also gaining traction. What are the key drivers behind recent market changes? Kable believes that the acceptance of hosted services amongst Australian enterprises is expected to grow as hosting delivers significant cost savings. What makes this report unique and essential to read? Kable Global ICT Intelligence has invested significant resources in order to interview CIOs and IT managers about their ICT Procurement. Very few IT analyst houses will have interviewed 80+ ICT decision makers in the Australian market in H2 2012.
Reasons To Buy
Most Australian enterprises prefer to buy technologies direct from suppliers and then deploy them on site rather than hosted, primarily because of the confidentiality of the data or legacy systems already in place. Kable believes that the improving economic conditions will have a positive effect on the Australian ICT market, which will be primarily driven by upcoming government contracts and regulatory requirements in the financial services sector. The use of IT to support revenue growth is currently rated at the lower end of the IT objective list with an average rating of X on the scale of 1 to 4. The indication of increasing ICT complexity is clear as very few enterprises (just X% of respondents) state that their ICT infrastructure is entirely standards based, where they operate with a small number of interoperable vendor solutions. Therefore, Kable believes that it is imperative for ICT vendors to showcase how their products and services meet enterprises’ requirements without adding to their ICT complexity. The decision with regards to ICT investments is mostly influenced by higher authorities such as the CIO and the CEO. ICT vendors must understand the views of CEOs and CIOs with regards to technology investment decisions, and must work towards developing a relationship with these executives to enhance their business opportunities.
