The outlook for IT Spending has remained clouded by macroeconomic uncertainty in recent months, despite a relatively stable year in which most markets have performed broadly in line with expectations so far. Elections in the U.S., the fallout from Brexit in Europe, ongoing uncertainty in China, volatility in emerging markets, and spluttering growth in Japan have all been adding to a sense that planned IT investments remain vulnerable to external risk factors. While most organizations remain broadly positive about strategic initiatives and digital transformation, contingency plans are being drawn up and anxiety levels are once again rising.

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, answering questions such as:

  • What is the current state of business confidence and IT spending plans for organizations in the U.S. and international markets?
  • What impact is Brexit having on the outlook for IT spending in Europe?
  • If there is an economic slowdown in the next 18 months, what effect will this have on technology spending and IT budget planning?
  • Which vertical industries are likely to be most impacted by economic volatility?
  • What are the key economic leading indicators which provide insight into IT spending projections for 2017?

Session Speakers:

Stephen Minton, Vice President, Customer Insights and Analysis
