IDC TechScape: Worldwide 5G Use Cases for a Future of Connectedness Strategy, 2023


Jason Leigh

This IDC study examines specific and broad categories of 5G-enabled use cases for 2023. As companies embrace the future of connectedness paradigm to enhance their operational agility and resilience, adopting 5G use cases will be an indispensable tool and benefit to the connectivity journey. Faster speeds, lower latency, and the increased connection density offered by 5G provide improved reliability and allow cellular to transition from a connectivity of convenience to a viable primary conduit for business networking. But navigating the hype, and commercial viability and accessibility of the multitude 5G use cases is challenging.

This IDC TechScape is both a strategic planning and a tactical decision-making tool that aims to help IT buyers frame their thinking and evaluate 5G use cases against the backdrop of their potential to deliver opportunistic, incremental, and transformational impact.

"It is imperative that companies approach their adoption of, and investment in, 5G use cases deliberately and dispassionately, with an eye on both the business impact and realistic timelines for commercial availability rather than be swayed by hype and headlines," says Jason Leigh, research manager, 5G and Mobile Services at IDC. "The key to maximizing 5G use cases' opportunistic, incremental, or transformational impacts comes not in evaluating the use case and adoption curve in isolation but rather holistically when the use case is framed and interconnected with legacy business operations and driven by a broader future of connectedness agenda."
