Hence, the scrutinizing process has to be done very thoroughly and carefully,? said Simon Piff, associate vice president of infrastructure research, IDC Asia Pacific. He added that most countries in Asia are lucrative markets to set up and grow businesses, barring a few which have political and technological environments as deterrent factors. The IDC Asia Pacific Datacenter Index was created due to ongoing interest in locating datacenters into the Asian market. It evaluated 13 countries in Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) or APeJ to rank them for their suitability for setting up and outsourcing to the data centers existent in those countries. IDC completed a political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental (PESTLE) analysis for each country and considered factors that contribute to operational costs for running the datacenter business. A total of 18 factors were considered for evaluation of all the countries. ]]>
