LONDON, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Mobility 2014 Top 10 Predictions


In this IDC study, IDC analysts come together to review the current year and discuss the emerging technologies and market changes that will impact and drive the future of the mobility industry. One of the outcomes of this process is a shortlist of our top 10 predictions for the coming year. This list, discussed in this study, includes factors that we believe will have the biggest impact on the mobile industry in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), or APEJ, region in 2014.

"In the rapidly changing and hyper-competitive market that is Asia/Pacific, mobile operators, service providers, and enterprises are facing uncertainties in the economic conditions, natural and manmade disasters, and ever-increasing pressure to innovate. The need for out-of-the box thinking for inspirations for growth has never been greater," says Charles Anderson, associate vice president for Telecom Practice, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Advancement in technologies, such as connectivity, analytics, cloud, and contents, will help; but carriers, service providers, and customers will still need to transform their thinking and the way they do business to remain relevant in the future. They need to find a balance for optimal operation between what they have (infrastructure wise) and pleasing the demanding customers and end users. The road ahead will be difficult but the rewards for those that are able to navigate thru all those traps will be worth it."
