This IDC study presents an assessment of the South African market for IS outsourcing, managed, hosted, and cloud services in 2012. The study contains details on market sizing and presents forecasts for the market categories for the next five years (2013-2017) and aims to answer the following questions:

  • What are IDC's forecasts for spending on IS outsourcing, managed, hosted, and cloud services in South Africa?
  • What are the assumptions behind IDC's forecast numbers? What impact have these assumptions had on IDC's market forecasts?
  • What are the latest trends in managed, cloud, and datacenter services delivery in the South Africa?

End-user organizations will look to cost-effective IT delivery solutions such as cloud computing. The cloud market in South Africa is expanding, with a number of international and new local providers entering the market, and it is maturing fast due to competition with established vendors." -- Africa Software and IT Services Manager Lise Hagen, IDC South Africa.
