The IT research firm IDC says that this market is expected to grow in value to about $1 billion in 2019; this compares to $445 million in 2015. IBM’s new Cloud Data Center, the company’s 47th overall, will be able to assist Korean businesses in accelerating their digital transformation and global growth.
