sophisticated and mature markets in the Asia-Pacific region, but has some
distinct nuances that make it its own standalone entity.

from 2013 to 2016, and the need to effectively service this growing market
will rise, especially as local providers increasingly look outside their home
- Assess and evaluate some of the key factors that need to be considered
when looking to enter the South Korean IT services market.
- Understand some of the pitfalls to be avoided and considerations at a
macro and micro level that will support an investment decision.
- Even though South Korea's IT services market is worth $13bn, is it a
market worth targeting?
- Is the influence of the major chaebols' IT services arms so enveloping
that it is hardly worth considering South Korea as an IT services market
