IDC: W. European Blockchain Spending to Reach $1.8bn by 2021

According to IDC W. Europe will be the 2nd largest global region in terms of spending on the blockchain, starting from around $200 million in 2017 before nearly tripling to $1.8 billion by 2021.

The initial investments include all experimentation projects and proof-of-concept cases. Interest in blockchain runs across industries, bringing about a CAGR of 66.6% for the 2016-2021 period.

"During 2017 many companies across a wide range of industries started to understand the feasibility, sustainability, and potential deployment of blockchain," the analyst remarks. "2018 will be the year of blockchain."

Intel Meltdown-, Spectre-Proof CPUs to Launch in 2018

Intel reports record revenues for Q4 and full-year 2017, reaching $17.1 billion for Q4 and $62.8bn for the full year-- even if the fallout of Meltdown and Spectre might affect future financials.

Q4 2014 revenue growth is at 8% Y-o-Y, while 2017 growth reaches 9%. Chipzilla says most growth comes from "data-centric" operations, contrasting with PC-centric operation revenues declining by -2% Y-o-Y in Q4 2017 (or growing modestly by 3% for full-year 2017).

Also showing growth is IoT, with both Q4 and full-year 2017 revenues rising by 20% Y-o-Y. Non-volatile memory is up by 9% Y-o-Y in Q4 and 37% for the year, while programmable solutions revenues are up by 35% Y-o-Y for Q4 and 14% for overall 2017.

Gartner: IT Spending Totals $3.7 Trillion in 2018

Global IT spending will total $3.7 trillion in 2018, Gartner reports-- a 4.5% increase over 2017, even if the year might see some uncertainty in the shape of Brexit, currency fluctuations and a possible recession.

"Despite this uncertainty, businesses will continue to invest in IT as they anticipate revenue growth, but their spending patterns will shift," the analyst continues. "Projects in digital business, blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), and progression from big data to algorithms to machine learning to artificial intelligence (AI) will continue to be main drivers of growth."

Enterprise software shows strong growth in 2018, with global spending set to grow by 9.5% before growing by another 8.4% in 2019 to total $421 billion. Organisations should increase spending on enterprise application software in 2018, with more of the budget shifting to software as a service (SaaS). The growing availability of SaaS-based solutions encourages new adoption and spending across many subcategories, including financial management systems (FMS), human capital management (HCM) and analytic applications.

According to Gartner EMEA PC shipments total 21.8 million in Q4 2017-- a -1.4% Y-o-Y decline, with the market hit by ailing demand in the UK and weaker-than-expected German shipments.

The analyst expects a Y-o-Y increase in W. European PC revenues for the quarter, while a combination of currency fluctuations, rising component costs and a product-mix shift towards higher-value products (such as gaming systems and high-performance notebooks) brings an increase in ASPs.

On a global basis, Q4 2017 PC shipments are down by -2% Y-o-Y to 71.6m units, making a 13th consecutive quarter of falling global PC shipments. Meanwhile full-year 2017 is the 6th year of annual PC declines, as shipments total 262.5m, a fall of -2.8% decline.
