This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to review, analyze, and assess vendors in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) datacenter services market. The research employed quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate the strategies and capabilities of vendors to address the needs of technology buyers as they consider sourcing datacenter operations and management services. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive set of parameters important to meet the technology buyer's current and future needs. This IDC MarketScape covers vendors in the APEJ datacenter market with significant footprint and presence across four or more countries in the region.
'The APEJ region has become an attractive market and investment opportunity for both local businesses and businesses from outside the region. A large part of this opportunity is being driven by the new digital economy of mobile phone and edge Internet of Things (IoT) sensor applications. The third-party colocation datacenter is becoming the backbone for digital services. Enterprises and MNCs with a regional focus must think carefully about a range of considerations for their datacenter deployment, including the type of datacenter (captive, third-party colocation, hosting, cloud). When assessing datacenter vendors, technology buyers should consider factors such as the facility, connectivity, value-added services as well as the providers' geographic footprint in order to minimize latency and provide the best customer experience,' --says Dr. Glen Duncan, associate research director, datacenter, IDC Asia/Pacific.
