Gartner Ramps Up IT Spending Expectations

Gartner have again ramped up their IT expenditure expectations for 2011.

The analyst is now predicting a spending increase of 7.1% worldwide. This would take global IT expenditure up to $3.67 trillion. Such growth is also expected to continue into 2012 according to Gartnerís Vice President Richard Gordon.

Hardware is one area where expenditure is increasing exponentially and Gartner now envisage companies worldwide spending $419 billion within this particular sector. This is a 11.7% increase from last years $365 billion.

Particular emphasis has been placed on Public Cloud spending which is predicted to reach $89 billion this year. By 2015 this is expected to be up to $177 billion representing 5% of total IT spending worldwide.

In addition Gartner predict that companies will collectively spend $13 billion more on software this year. Additional spending on ‘Software As A Service (SAAS)’ applications is expected to grow to $20 billion by 2015.

ďAt about $10 billion, Software As A Service already accounts for 10% of enterprise applications software spending, and by 2015 this share is expected to increase to close to 15% and to exceed $20 billion in annual spending,Ē Gordon said.

One main reason for revised projections has been the realised impact of the Japanese tsunami.† Despite production in Japan being slowed overall IT expenditure has not being affected.
