Digital Native Enterprises Gain Traction in Asia-Pacific

IDC unveiled its top information and communications technology (ICT) predictions for Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APeJ) region. IDC now predicts that many more organizations will be 'digitally determined' by 2020, transforming commercial markets and reimagining their future growth potential.

Digitally determined organizations demonstrate the ability to vision, plan, and operationalize their digital transformation (DX) through ambition, grit, discipline and commitment. Ultimately, all digital determined organizations aspire to become 'digital native enterprises'.

Digital Business Market Development

"To be one of the digitally determined, Asia-Pacific organizations requires more than tenacity; it requires a blueprint that consists of a single enterprise strategy, resoluteness to make required organizational and cultural changes, a long investment strategy based on the principle that digital is inherently valuable to the business; and should have a single digital platform to scale technology innovations," said Sandra Ng, group vice president at IDC.

According to Ng, the top predictions that will impact the overall ICT industry -- both technology buyers and their vendor suppliers -- in the Asia-Pacific region during the next 36 months are:

Digital determination: By 2020, at least 55 percent of organizations will be digitally determined, transforming markets and reimagining the future through new business models and digitally enabled products and services.

Data monetization: By 2020, 60 percent of large enterprises will create data management or monetization capabilities, thus enhancing enterprise functions, strengthening competitiveness, and creating new sources of revenue.

Digital KPIs: By 2023, 80 percent of entities will have incorporated new digital KPI sets – focusing on product or service innovation rates, data capitalization, and employee experience – to navigate the digital economy.

Digital twin: By 2020, 30 percent of leading companies will have implemented advanced digital twins of their operational processes which will enable flatter organizations and one third fewer knowledge workers.

Agile connectivity: By 2021, driven by LoB needs, 60 percent of CIOs will deliver agile connectivity via APIs and architectures that interconnect digital solutions from cloud vendors, system developers, startups, and others.

Blockchain-enabled DX platforms: By 2021, prominent in-industry value chains, enabled by blockchains, will have extended their digital platforms to their entire omni-experience ecosystems, thus reducing transaction costs by 35 percent.

BizOps: By 2021, 45 percent of CIOs will expand Agile or DevOps practices into the wider business to achieve the velocity necessary for innovation, execution, and transformative change.

AI-driven edge: By 2022, over 30 percent of organizations’ cloud deployments will include edge computing, and 25 percent of endpoint devices and systems will execute artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.

Digital trust: By 2020, 55 percent of CIOs will initiate a digital trust framework that goes beyond preventing cyber attacks and enables organizations to resiliently rebound from adverse situations, events, and effects.

AI-based IT Operations: Compelled to curtail IT spending, improve enterprise IT agility, and accelerate innovation, 60 percent of CIOs will aggressively apply data and AI to IT operations, tools, and processed by 2021.

Outlook for Future Enterprise Applications

Ng concludes, "AI is creating a new paradigm for individuals, businesses, industries, economies and governments. It is shaping the future of intelligence in organizations and in workers. To this end, IDC predicts that by 2025, 60 percent of frontline connected devices will be voice-enabled, with a smart assistant, and able to control 80 percent of devices deployed in consumer and enterprise settings."

According to the IDC assessment, voice is increasingly influencing the way we work, live, learn and play. The race to the future enterprise has begun. No one and no entity will be spared of the need to at least reset or reboot, if not reinvent. Digital reinvention is the future, and the new normal for IT.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Secure Digital Workspace Apps Enable the Future Enterprise

In early 2020, as the world responded to the COVID-19 pandemic disruption, many organizations were forced to rapidly transform their communications networks and IT infrastructure to support an unprecedented shift to remote work. Before the pandemic, approximately 38 percent of employees were remote full-time or had a flexible work arrangement where they split time between home and office locations. During the pandemic, the percentage of remote workers that CIOs had to support reached almost 72 percent. Future Enterprise Technology Market Development Enterprise leaders have been forced to adapt to a new state, shifting from traditional office-based operations to distributed workforce environments that must still provide the same level of connectivity, security, and efficiency across the organization. According to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), addressing connectivity across geographies and transforming networks to become more virtual and agile
