Service Industry adopted IT services for quite a time, which has changed the way businesses work. Document management, supply chain management, operations management were streamlined by software services, which reduced costs, eliminated unnecessary business processes, and enhanced the efficiency of faster decision-making and isolating problems. Now the organizations are focused on Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud (SMAC), which are customer-focused.

According to the Market Segmentation, the following sectors that will have the highest growth rate are Managed Services, Professional Services, and Telecom Services.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic caused uncertainty and profound shifts on a global level. The crisis brought some challenges for companies around the world; the major one is remote work. During the rush of transmitting the workflow from offices to homes, IT departments deployed technologies to maintain business processes during the global health crisis. The massive move will continue to make waves, as many companies reopened the opportunities of flexible working arrangements.

Adopting digital workflows, optimizing business operations, and bringing innovations to meet the needs of a new market will continue to drive businesses around the globe. Flexible work policies necessitate additional technology investment. Modern communications are vital for businesses to function efficiently. That means investment in tech is essential for maintaining productivity levels.

Company size will be one of the significant factors in IT budget planning for 2021. Small and mid-size businesses (up to 1000 employees) will concentrate on upgrading outdated infrastructure and supporting a remote workforce. They will focus on industry-specific apps development, such as catering, education, healthcare. While enterprises will contribute to business operations to support their needs as changing regulations, recent security breaches, communications, and productivity software.

IT investors deprioritize employment sectors as pandemic cuts the hiring need for many companies. Ed-tech, on the other hand, will continue to grow in favor of more pressing needs such as employees’ training, support for remote workers, and distance learning.

Pandemic is driving new business needs to the service industry, thus holding the revenue of digitized businesses within 80% compared to 2020. IT now plays a vital role in connecting the client with the service, including web and mobile apps, educational and sharing platforms, loyalty programs.
