“The enterprise software marketplace is dynamic and ever-changing. Its growth and structure are being shaped by the factors and forces of decentralized purchasing, consumerization and mobility, influence of emerging markets, cloud-based implementations, and new consumption models,” said Bhavish Sood, research director at Gartner.
The main driver for increased IT adoption is the appreciation of IT as an enabler for business change. Indian enterprises will continue to invest in IT to improve productivity and drive enterprise growth by delivering operational results, while reducing costs and attracting and retaining customers, said Gartner.
Among the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), India software market experienced the highest growth rate.
