With the so-called 'fiscal cliff' narrowly averted, the global economy breathed a sigh of relief and looked ahead to 2013 with many hoping that the optimism shown by stock market investors in the second half of 2012 would foreshadow a meaningful acceleration in trade, growth and job creation. The technology sector outperformed the overall economy in 2012, and the new year began with predictions of more of the same in 2013. While the growth of smartphone and tablet adoption is inevitably beginning to slow after three years of phenomenal and record-breaking expansion, there are real hopes that the PC market can begin to recover and that businesses will continue to invest in new software while ramping up their project-based IT services investments. The journey to the cloud continues, meanwhile, changing the rules of the game for many IT suppliers and ensuring that the next 12 months will be anything but boring.
In this webcast, IDC's team of IT spending analysts and economists will answer questions such as:
- What are the economic wild cards which might disrupt IT spending in the next 12 months, and which market segments could be most affected?
- Which vertical markets are expected to exhibit the strongest rates of growth in the near term, and what are the key industry trends to monitor?
- What are CIOs telling us about their current IT spending priorities, and how does this compare with the opinions of Line of Business managers?
- Which geographical regions will be the rising stars in 2013, as the IT market moves "beyond BRIC" in search of the next decade of growth?
- Stephen Minton, Vice President, IDC Global Technology and Industry Research Organization
