Directions 2013 - Unlocking Value from the 3rd Platform: New Buyers, Offerings, and Competitors
As the ICT industry continues its shift to the 3rd Platform, challenges, competition and opportunities abound. This new technology platform, leading growth and innovation in both traditional and nascent market segments, is built on mobile devices and apps, cloud services, mobile broadband networks, big data analytics and social technologies. By 2020, when the ICT industry generates $5 trillion in spending, 40% of the industry's revenues, and - incredibly - 90% of its growth will be driven by 3rd Platform technologies that, today, represent just 22% of ICT spending.
Join IDC's leading analysts at Directions 2013 as they address 3rd Platform technologies, the high-value mash-ups of those technologies into "3rd Platform solutions," and other shifting market trends, as well as highlight the innovators that are wisely catching on to the 3rd Platform story to advance their competitive edge.
