Gartner Warns IT Enterprises away from Chinese Dependency
From iTnews: Don't count on China: Gartner
"Gartner this week issued a report encouraging enterprises to reduce any dependency on products and services from north-east Asia. Pundits had warned of unstable relations between China and Japan for the foreseeable future, Gartner said.
Dion Wiggins, a director at Gartner Research, said some 95 percent of the largest 2000 companies in the world had "extensive" interests -- including investments and staff -- in China and Japan.
"Most large global companies will have to adjust their strategies and plans if the China-Japan situation remains volatile. For many companies, it is no longer ‘business as usual’ in north-east Asia," Wiggins said."
