Abstract

This IDC Market Perspective outlines and discusses IDC's key global and industry assumptions for the 2H17 forecast cycle. To provide greater insight into the rationale behind the data and trends, this study outlines the overarching global and industry assumptions that serve as the foundation across the IDC Spending Guide body of research.

"The impact of tariffs and oil prices on IT spending assumptions will be complex and vary significantly by geography and industry," said Stephen Minton, vice president, Customer Insights and Analysis. "For example, higher tariffs on some imports to the United States will create positive benefits for some domestic firms but negatives for others that are faced with higher component and material costs. In turn, this might impact the speed at which some organizations migrate to the cloud and other service providers to rein in capital spending. To assess the broad impact of macroeconomic assumptions on IT spending, it's essential to take a nuanced industry perspective that considers specific factors affecting business profitability and sentiment in the context of current IT budget priorities and spending patterns."
