Philippines PC Market stagnant in 2Q12, Says IDC

Source: IDC Asia/Pacific Quarterly PC Tracker 2Q 2012

According to IDC’s Asia/Pacific PC Tracker, the Philippines PC market registered a flat growth of just 1.5% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), shipping a total of 551,000 units in 2Q12. Overall consumer shipments showed little change from the previous quarter as Q1 market leaders Acer and Samsung saw their market share eroded by other vendors that launched aggressive pricing and hardware bundling strategies. There was little notable activity in the commercial segment as the large government projects seen in Q1 were not repeated in Q2.

Cloud Adoption in the Asia/Pacific Financial Services Industry Still Waiting for Tipping Point, says IDC Financial Insights

Asia/Pacific financial services institutions are still taking a measured approach to cloud computing, as the industry awaits further clarity on cloud computing regulations and better articulation of business benefits by IT vendors. The findings were revealed in a report by IDC Financial Insights, “Perspective: A Slow Ascent Toward the Cloud for Asia/Pacific Financial Services” (Doc # FIN234601, May 2012), which examined the cloud computing adoption plans of banks and insurers across major markets in Asia/Pacific.

Michael Araneta, Associate Consulting and Research Director for IDC Asia/Pacific remarks, “The financial services industry, typically an early adopter of technology, has been uncharacteristically slow to take on cloud. There is still no wide-scale adoption of the technology, despite considerable resources allocated by vendors to ensure that their offerings scale up and become more mature.”

The report, which is based on a series of surveys undertaken by IDC Financial Insights, revealed that not more than 45% of financial institutions across key markets in Asia/Pacific (namely Singapore, Malaysia, China, India, Australia, and New Zealand) have adopted some form of cloud computing services. Furthermore, the preference of the industry is for the more manageable private cloud implementations, and usually for non-mission critical areas such as IT Management, server capacity, and storage.

IDC Sees a Start of Faster Growth for Hardcopy Peripherals Market in Philippines by Year-End 2010

nternational Data Corporation (IDC) sees 2010 as the springboard for faster growth of the hardcopy peripherals (HCP) market in the coming years. The encouraging economic and political climate in the country bodes well for the HCP market, with the rest of the year expected to be characterized by an upturn in spending.

“Multi-function peripherals (MFPs) are expected to further eat into the market share of single function peripherals (SFPs), in-line with the increasing preference for more efficient and cost-effective printing solutions. Laser SFPs and color laser MFPs are also projected to have double-digit growth, especially with the availability of more affordable models that could call the attention of small offices/home offices (SOHOs), small businesses and, even home consumers.”, says Pamela Joy M. Sumanga, Associate Market Analyst for Hardcopy Peripherals research at IDC Philippines.
