Top 10 IT Vendors in Central European Government Sector Account for Over Half of Government IT Spending, Says IDC
Prague, 24 Január, 2012
The top 10 IT vendors serving the government
sector in Central and Eastern Europe's Visegrad Group (V4), consisting
of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia, account for over
half of total government IT spending in the region. According to a
study by IT market research company IDC released in December, the top
vendors in the government sector were: Asseco, Atos, BIW Koncept, HP,
IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Telefonica O2 Business Solutions, and
"With more than $2.2 billion in government spending in play in
2011 and $2.35 billion forecast for 2012, the stakes are high in the V4
government sector," says Mark Yates, research analyst for IDC
Government Insights. "While winning contracts through tenders depends
on making a compelling case, it also depends heavily on reputation and
branding, and vendors that stay top-of-mind through concerted
promotions and outreach have a significant edge."
Key findings from the study include:
- The three leading vendors – HP, Asseco, and IBM – accounted
for more than half of the revenue from the top 10 and more than a
quarter of total IT spending in the government sector.
- Microsoft is the leading software provider, as its Office
Suite is still widely used by government entities at all levels, from
municipal to federal.
- Polish players Asseco and BIW Concept proved formidable
competitors to global players, particularly in their home country
IDC expects competition for contracts to intensify as budgets
get cut, the eurozone crisis continues, and recession threatens the
Western half of the continent. IDC believes an independent, high-level
assessment of the key players is essential to vendors looking to
maintain (or even expand) market share in the government sector.
