New report outlines comparative assessment of IoT deployment readiness for mature and emerging nations of Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) region*
SINGAPORE, July 11, 2017: APeJ comprises a significant portion of spend in the IDC IOT Spending guide. The regional economies provide a rich diversity and quality of overall economic stature, business readiness, and technological preparedness along with different levels of efficiencies that loT solutions can create. IDC's global team developed a comparative model to evaluate the IoT readiness of the G20 nations (see G20 Nations and the IoT : A Comparative Assessment (Doc # US41866816)). The regional IDC team has extended this model to countries in Asia Pacific (Excluding Japan), (APeJ Nations and the IoT: A Comparative Assessment (Doc # AP42881317) This report compares 13 countries in the region, revealing South Korea, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia as the most IoT prepared countries.

"Countries are keen to demonstrate their relative digital competitiveness, and as such are looking to The Internet of Things as one of those initiatives," says Hugh Ujhazy, associate vice president of The Internet of Things in APeJ. "Knowing where a country stands in the loT index will help global and local IT vendors know what opportunities lie ahead of them as they line up their strategies at federal, local, and enterprise levels."
"IDC's assessment of the APEJ nations' capacity to develop loT opportunities reveals some surprising results," adds Shaily Shah, research manager, Internet of Things. "Not all countries are created equal, and sheer GDP size alone is not necessarily the best predictor of a country's readiness for and ability to accelerate the development of the loT."
For technology buyers to address opportunities and evaluate country readiness with respect to technology and innovation, this report focuses on the following:
This composite index ranking is for 13 APeJ nations (mix of developed and developing) across 13 critical parameters such as economic stability, technology spends, innovation potential, etc. as articulated in the global G20 study.
While globally United States, South Korea and United Kingdom led this model, in the region the top three countries are South Korea, Singapore and New Zealand respectively. These have the most efficiencies for nation-wide IoT adoption across all criteria.
This study also covers the future outlook, strategic partnerships and essential vendor guidance for technology leaders looking to invest and participate in the IoT development of individual nations in APeJ
