Dublin - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "ICT Spend in South Africa: Public Sector" report to their offering.

This research service provides an analysis of ICT spend by the public sector in South Africa. The objective of the study is to contextualize ICT investment within the sector across 7 categories: cellular connectivity, cloud services, data centres, fixed and non-cellular connectivity, IT hardware, managed services, and systems integration. The analysis includes an overview of the public sector, drivers and restraints, and technology trends driving investment in ICT, highlighting both the current and future spend from 2015 to 2019. The base year for analysis is 2014.

As a result of the global economic crisis, governments have shifted the focus of their information and communication technologies (ICT) budgets and spend onto projects that do not require massive ICT spending such as the improvement of eAdministration and ePublic service initiatives.

In developed countries, ICT spend is purely focused on advancing infrastructure via public- private partnerships (PPPs) and developing eGovernment services to foster cooperation between the government, enterprises, and citizens.

In South Africa, however, ICT spend is more focused on updating IT hardware and data centres, and on supporting systems integration. Yet the biggest challenge that the country faces is deciding how to prioritise ICT spend when the improvement of other, perhaps more important, issues such as the health, education, and social welfare take precedence.
