Amidst a relatively calm global economy, IT spending has performed broadly in line with expectations in recent quarters. The shift to the 3rd Platform continues, causing major disruption for vendors forced to tackle the decline of traditional revenue streams while repositioning themselves to take advantage of opportunities in cloud, mobile, big data, social, and new technologies including IoT, robotics, and cognitive computing. Meanwhile, IT buyers continue to shift their focus beyond the traditional on-premise datacenter and application environment into one which is more dispersed, fluid, and dynamic than in the past. So far, even economic wild cards have done nothing to stall this march into the brave new world of the cloud-first, mobile-first, connected 3rd Platform. With digital transformation initiatives continuing to gain traction across a wide swath of industries, it would take a severe economic slowdown to disrupt the underlying trends which have come to drive IT spending over the past two years. The question is not whether old technology categories will be overtaken and replaced, but how quickly?

In this IDC Web conference, Stephen Minton will review the latest IT spending data and leading economic indicators for IT buyer behavior, alongside updated market sizing and forecasts from the IDC Worldwide Black Book and Semiannual IT Spending Guide by Industry and Company Size, answering questions such as:

  • What impact will the latest economic indicators have on the IT industry in the second half of 2017 and 2018?
  • Which emerging markets will provide the strongest opportunities in the next 12 months, and which are adopting new 3rd Platform technologies the fastest?
  • What are the key vertical industry trends for IT spending in traditional categories and new technologies?
  • Which new technology solutions are seeing the strongest adoption levels, and how much IT spending will move to new platforms in 2018?
  • How will IT spending growth compare to the overall economy, after factoring in the impact of new 3rd Platform technologies?
