A two-speed market is emerging around the world in terms of investment in particular technologies with spending on traditional ICT hardware, software, and services slowing and shifting to a set of newer transformational technologies subsumed under what can be called the “Third Platform”. The Third Platform is the third in a once in every 20-25 year transition to a new platform for growth and innovation in the ICT industry – and is being built upon a combination of newer technologies such as mobility (devices, applications, services), cloud (both private and public), big data and social media.
This EITO thematic report gives an overview of key technology trends that are currently reshaping the ICT environment and industry. The focus is on mobility, social media, cloud and big data in Europe distinguishing between Western Europe and Central & Eastern Europe. This report is an excerpt of the more comprehensive “ICT Market Report 2012/13”. From that report it includes the chapters that analyze macroeconomic developments affecting the ICT market as well as the chapters on key technology trends.
