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.

Gartner: "Moderate" Decline for Q4 EMEA PCs

E-mail Print PDF
Gartner:

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.

According to the EC, the acquisition of high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure is "crucial" for the competitiveness and Independence of the continent's data economy. After all, the current lack of necessary infrastructure forces European scientists and industry to process data outside the EU, bringing potential threats to privacy, data protection, commercial trade secrets and data ownership, particularly in sensitive applications.
