2017 is shaping up to be a good year for IT spending. New technologies including IoT, robotics, and AR/VR are expanding the overall market, while traditional categories migrate to cloud and mobile platforms and businesses ramp up their investment in analytics or social collaboration to boost productivity. Digital transformation initiatives are driving an uptick in project-oriented spending, as end-users seek to leverage technology innovation into business benefits. A stable global economy has also helped, with emerging markets rebounding while mature economies have continued to post stable growth despite wild cards like Brexit. While economic risks remain, the short-term outlook has improved in recent months. However, beneath this picture of apparent calm and positive growth, seismic shifts are taking place which will reshape the industry for the next decade and beyond.

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, answering questions such as:

  • How has the technology market performed so far in 2017, and how have forecasts for 2018 changed as a result?
  • What impact will economic trends have on IT spending over the next five years, and what are the main downside risks to the outlook?
  • Which new technologies are experiencing the fastest growth in emerging markets, and which geographies are set to emerge as global leaders beyond 2020?
  • How quickly are tech budgets moving from 2nd Platform deployments to the 3rd Platform of cloud, mobile, and new technologies?
  • What does the expansion of the IT industry and the emergence of new categories mean for traditional tech vendors and buyers?

Session Speakers:

Stephen Minton, Vice President, Customer Insights & Analysis
