What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Despite global economic uncertainty, South Africa's ICT sector is expected to continue to show strong growth in the future, primarily driven by high spending on hardware and mobile communications by enterprises in order to build better ICT infrastructures.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Investments in hardware have been at a high level in South Africa, driven by increased adoption of client computing and network infrastructure technologies. The growing availability of wired and wireless access, along with decreasing communications costs, has also been driving sales of notebooks, tablets, and smart phone devices among enterprises of all sizes.

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 IT Budgets. Very few IT analyst houses will have interviewed 60+ ICT decision makers in the South African market in H2 2012.
ICT investments are, however, mostly directed towards improving traditional ICT infrastructures rather than investing in new technologies.

The proportion of the ICT budget spent on communications is expected to decline by X% in 2013 compared to 2012.

Kables recent survey shows that enterprises are not willing to make additional investments with local resellers of technology products and specialist outsourcing vendors.

The gradual increase in popularity of hosted data centers and cloud infrastructures as enterprises look to save cost is going to impact the investment on core technologies.

Kable expects the percentage of the telecommunications budget spent on converged voice and data networks to continue to remain low due to the unavailability of advanced network infrastructure to support the services.
