Even though the pace is sluggish in 2016, European countries are recovering from the economic crisis, as is the case with the Netherlands, which is looking to invest in various ICT domains and disruptive technologies such as the internet of things (IoT) and cloud computing to boost innovation and achieve competitive edge.
Kable's survey finds that Dutch enterprises are planning to increase their hardware expenditure in 2016 in order to adopt and support remote working trends, leading to increased spending on mobile devices, tablets, and smartphones in workplace environments.
The survey also finds that enterprises in the Netherlands are increasing their expenditure on platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) in order to provide an agile platform for software development to users and also to handle their in-house infrastructure costs, along with increasing the manageability of operations at disparate locations.
Finally, increasing customer satisfaction remains the most important business objective influencing Dutch enterprises' IT investment strategy, followed by survival, thereby indicating enterprises' need to increase their profit margins and focus on long-term goals in order to operate in a competitive environment.
ICT investment trends in the Netherlands presents the findings from a survey of 80 Dutch enterprises regarding their Information & Communications Technology (ICT) investment trends. The survey investigates how Dutch enterprises currently allocate their ICT budgets across the core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure: hardware, software, IT services, communications, and consulting. The report illustrates the core technologies that enterprises are investing in, including IoT, cloud computing, business intelligence, and communications & collaboration. The survey also highlights the approach to purchasing technology adopted by enterprises in the Netherlands.
