The increased shift to hybrid work ?? coupled with digitization initiatives ?? has led organizations to rethink their dependence on paper documents and printers while finding solutions that enable mobility, security, accessibility and business resilience. According to the presentation of the IDC survey Accelerated or progressive transformers in APeJ (Asia-Pacific excluding Japan), over 75% of organizations expect the volume of printed pages to decline over the next two years. Coupled with the fact that nearly half of all organizations (47.7%) expect a reduction in printing devices, these trends suggest a rapid maturity and adoption of document solutions as the region seeks to digitize documents. paper process.
Countries were divided into accelerated or incremental transformers, based on responses relating to the likelihood of going completely paper-free, the timeline for WorkSpace transformation, and the extent to which they believe print volume and peripherals printing will decline over the next two years. Accelerated transformers include India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and Korea, while progressive transformers include China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
?? Both groups will transform the WorkSpace to cater for a hybrid workforce, thereby increasing the accessibility of print services through solutions or feature upgrades to enable the work of no one. anywhere, ?? says Kenneth Tham, senior market analyst for imaging, printing and documentation solutions at IDC Asia / Pacific.
Respondents from India, Thailand and Malaysia indicated that they would see print volumes and devices decline to a greater extent than digitally mature countries like Australia and Korea. This suggests that their near-term investments in document solutions will be focused on transforming business processes while almost eliminating the need for paper. On the other hand, Taiwan and Hong Kong were categorized as progressive transformers despite their digital maturity ?? it echoes the legislative value that printed materials still have in these countries. Their document transformation initiatives will address the coexistence of paper and digital documents, ensuring that data from all sources is captured and fed into core business systems.
Accelerated and Progressive Transformers were examined to determine how they would transform the workspace, as well as the document solutions they would use to augment business processes. Respondents were also asked about plans to digitize live / overdue documents, whether in-house or outsourced services will be used, and what factors they will prioritize when selecting a digitization provider.
IDC’s research into next-generation imaging, printing and document solutions in Asia / Pacific examines new opportunities in the printing environment, from intelligent scan / print devices and managed workflows up to 3D printing. This research provides insight into the potential innovation that will disrupt the traditional printing equipment market in Asia / Pacific. In light of the adoption of Platform 3 technologies, particularly in cloud, big data and mobility, end users continue to evaluate and adopt new solutions to improve their workflow environment. work from office to industrial level.
