ICT Investment Trends in Austria: Government initiatives impacting ICT investment strategies

Austrian economy appears to be back on track with visible economic activities across industries. Although strong private consumption and investment are the main growth drivers for the Austrian economy, almost all industries are expected to benefit from the growing demand for goods and services in 2017. Moreover, the Austrian government is placing emphasis in providing affordable digital infrastructure under its digital roadmap strategy. The government plans to formulate its 5G strategy by the end of 2017 and expects to launch 5G (mobile) technologies across all regional capitals by the year 2020.

Growing e-commerce, high penetration of data services, and advances in cloud computing are the driving factors for investments in technologies in the Austrian enterprise market.
