Scope

This research service provides an analysis of ICT spend by the public sector in South Africa. The objective of the study is to contextualize ICT investment within the sector across 7 categories: cellular connectivity, cloud services, data centres, fixed and non-cellular connectivity, IT hardware, managed services, and systems integration. The analysis includes an overview of the public sector, drivers and restraints, and technology trends driving investment in ICT, highlighting both the current and future spend from 2015 to 2019. The base year for analysis is 2014.

Key Findings

•As a result of the global economic crisis, governments have shifted the focus of their information and communication technologies (ICT) budgets and spend onto projects that do not require massive ICT spending such as the improvement of eAdministration and ePublic service initiatives.
•In developed countries, ICT spend is purely focused on advancing infrastructure via public-private partnerships (PPPs) and developing eGovernment services to foster cooperation between the government, enterprises, and citizens.
•In South Africa, however, ICT spend is more focused on updating IT hardware and data centres, and on supporting systems integration. Yet the biggest challenge that the country faces is deciding how to prioritise ICT spend when the improvement of other, perhaps more important, issues such as the health, education, and social welfare take precedence.
•In 2014, ICT spend within the public sector was an estimated $ xx million and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of xx % during the 5-year forecast period, reaching $ xx million by 2019.

Research Overview

•Technological advances and the promotion of connectivity by various stakeholders in South Africa have combined to produce a market that is extremely attractive to a range of ICT providers.
•Changing market dynamics have also pushed ICT providers to expand their product and service offerings away from basic connectivity, voice, and messaging revenues.
•In order to compete effectively, ICT service providers need to improve their understanding of particular industries and their specific ICT requirements over time.
•This evolution in strategy requires improved understanding of industry dynamics in order to better understand the impact of ICT developments on customer needs, particularly adoption trends.
