IDC makes 2020 Worldwide IT Predictions

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

IDC makes 2020 Worldwide IT Predictions with a focus on businesses digitally transforming.

  1. By 2023, more than 50% of all ICT (information and communications technology) spending will go toward digital transformation and innovation, the report found, which is up from 27% in 2018.

  2. By 2022, 70% of enterprises will deploy unified hybrid/multicloud management technologies, tools, and processes.

  3. By 2023, more than 50% of new enterprise infrastructure deployed will be at the edge rather than corporate data centers, up from less than 10% today. And, by 2024, the number of apps at the edge will increase 800%.

  4. By 2025, nearly two-thirds of enterprises will be prolific software producers, with code deployed daily. More than 90% of apps will be cloud native, 80% of code will be externally sourced, and 1.6 times more developers will exist than today.

  5. By 2023, more than 500 million digital apps and services will be developed and deployed using cloud-native approaches – the same number of apps developed in the last 40 years. Most will be targeted at industry-specific digital transformation use cases.

  6. By 2025, at least 90% of new enterprise apps will embed AI, making apps "smarter" and "more dynamic." By 2024, more than 50% of user interface interactions will use AI-enabled computer vision, speech, natural language processing (NLP), and AR/VR (augmented reality/virtual reality).

  7. By 2023, half of the Global 2000 will name a chief trust officer, who orchestrates trust across security, risk, compliance, privacy, and ethical business operations.

  8. By 2023, 60% of the Global 2000 will have a digital developer ecosystem with thousands of developers. Half of these enterprises will drive at least 20% of digital revenue through their digital ecosystem/platform.

  9. By 2025, 20% of revenue growth will come from "white space" offerings, which combine digital services from previously unlinked industries. One-fifth of partners will be from previously unlinked industries.

  10. By 2023, the top five public cloud megaplatforms will consolidate at least 75% of IaaS and PaaS market share, while SaaS vendors becoming platforms will increase. The top 10 pure-play SaaS vendors will generate an average of nearly 20% revenue from expanding their PaaS services.
