IT Spending is on the rise. According to Gartner IT spending will surpass $3.6 trillion in 2012. As an IT Services provider, the biggest question is where will the money be spent? Based on the forecast chart below 2013, I really like the fact that software is still out growing hardware. Honestly, I thought hardware would be even lower compared to software.
The biggest surprise is the IT Services. In a time where the Cloud dominates most of IT’s discussions, I personally would have thought we would see more spending in the IT Services Area. Although a significant growth over last year, (more than double) companies need to solidify their IT processes to ensure the investments made in infrastructure are working optimally. Many times IT organizations assume implementation of technology and project closure makes for a successful project.
