Systems Integration: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Businesses across the world are faced with a common challenge of getting their different applications, based on different platforms to work in tandem with each other. Growing awareness among business partners, and severe competition in the market are compelling companies to provide customers, employees and other business partners with on-demand services and information sourced from different data resources. This scenario therefore demands that the companies combine their multiple application capabilities, including legacy applications and programs, and establish an integrated set-up. In order to achieve this, companies need to implement efficient application integration in a quick, easy and flexible manner, thus driving up demand for integration solutions and services. For instance, as companies recalibrate their communication applications and network infrastructure into cost-effectively supporting distributed Information Technology applications, the importance of systems integration services/solutions comes to the fore.

Fortunes in the market for Systems Integration (SI) are closely tied to sales of enterprise application software (EAS), as efficient deployment and implementation of EAS solutions demand efficient systems and application integration solutions/services. With companies continuing to seek and invest in new application software to ensure against loss of competitiveness amidst shifting market fundamentals, and be able to timely nail down shortages, bottlenecks, and market disruptions, the demand for EAS will only increase further over the next few years, thereby driving rich market prospects for global Systems Integration market.

Growing momentum towards Virtualization as a means for consolidation of IT resources has and will continue to generate considerable opportunities for systems integration market. Several global organizations are currently focusing on re-engineering, consolidation and rationalization of their datacenters and virtualization of their infrastructure. Datacenter consolidation through virtualization is a critical strategy in infrastructure consolidation. Aimed at enhancing data center operations, virtualization serves as a means for consolidation of IT resources, reduction in power/energy consumption and space requirements and for ensuring continuity of an organization’s IT set-up. Consolidation of servers, desktops, storage, applications and data as a part of this strategy will therefore drive up opportunities for IT systems integration and consulting services.

Systems integration services are also forecast to grow in the public sector encouraged largely by government investments in upgrading IT infrastructure. Implementation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in government agencies, introduction of public convenience and safety solutions, such as E-governance, and modernization programs, such as those initiated by the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), will especially boost demand for systems integration over the next few years. Collection, storage and sharing of critical information among different governing agencies demand greater degree of data security to serve as a precautionary measure against terrorist attacks. In particular, collaborative data sharing, horizontal integration and safeguarding assets and infrastructure from external risks are high priority projects. In addition, energy and environment, and public healthcare will further drive growth in the IT professional services sector including development and integration services. Government initiatives in countries including Japan, Australia, and European Union region will also provide impetus to the growth in the international market.
