U.S. Small and Medium-Sized Business Forecast, 2017–2021: PCs and Peripherals, Systems and Storage, Telecommunications/Network Equipment, Software, IT Services, and Business Services
This IDC study forecasts IT spending by small and medium-sized businesses in the United States.
"Spending on information technology by the 6.6 million small and medium-sized businesses in the United States will approach $175.8 billion in 2017, accounting for roughly 30% of overall global SMB IT spending," says Ray Boggs, vice president, Small and Medium Business research at IDC. "Successful vendors have been responsive to changing SMB technology requirements but will be under increasing pressure to deliver near-term performance results while supporting longer-term initiatives in keeping with digital transformation, especially for more forward-looking SMBs."
