South Africa is currently experiencing a difficult monetary policy environment that is leading to high inflation rates and weakening growth. However, the government is looking at encouraging SMEs and at improving the education system to boost performance and inclusion. Furthermore, local industries such as manufacturing, mining, and quarrying are expected to contribute significantly towards the GDP of the country.

Key Findings:
–    Survey shows that South African enterprises are investing significantly across core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure, including hardware, software, and IT services, while increasing their expenditure on software and communications, in order to cut costs and improve their varied business processes.
–    The survey further reveals that South African enterprises’ hardware budgets are primarily dominated by expenditure on network and communications equipment in order to support the growing needs of the organization.
–    Enterprises are also shifting aggressively toward on-demand cloud models to create flexible and low-cost environments for their users and are thereby investing in software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) platforms to create more flexible environments in order to innovate and build applications and services that will drive sales and growth of the organizations.
