"Indian organizations are increasingly looking at harnessing big data and business analytics to increase competitive advantage. Additionally, there is a renewed thrust on modernizing and evolving enterprise applications and accelerating cloud-related initiatives. Over the course of the next 24 months, Indian organizations would attempt at maximizing their investments in analytics, cloud, and artificial intelligence through appropriate monetization mechanisms. This is slated to act as a catalyst in driving digital transformation across organizations," said Ranganath Sadasiva, Director, Enterprise Solutions, IDC India.

"Opportunities also exist in the application development and deployment software categories in the country. IDC Tracker research predicts a growth of 11% for this segment in CY 2019. This is primarily being led by the demand for Agile/DevOps frameworks, methodologies, and tools to support DX initiatives, and is ably enabled by the presence of a large supply of developers locally," said Mohsin Baig, Market Analyst, Enterprise Software, IDC India.
