While the overall IT market remains weighed down by slowing consumer sales of PCs, tablets and smartphones, commercial IT spending has continued to post strong growth as businesses around the world adopt new 3rd Platform solutions while navigating a volatile global economy. Enterprise spending on Cloud, Big Data, Mobility and Security outpaced the overall industry in 2016, and industry-focused solutions are increasingly taking center stage as the market evolves away from previous revenue streams. Strong pockets of growth have emerged, such as rapid investments by financial services firms in data analytics software, increasing IT services spending by telecommunication providers and strong investment by professional services firms on customer-focused solutions. Digital transformation initiatives are spreading beyond large corporations into the midmarket, and SMBs in emerging geographies are showing an increasing willingness to invest in software to drive business performance. For IT vendors, developing a deep understanding of industry and company size trends will be key to capitalizing on the expected surge in spending on 3rd Platform and Innovation Accelerator technologies over the next five years.
