Even though economic behavior is a little difficult to predict with a great deal accuracy, Gartner is confident that IT spending will show a healthier status this year. According to the firm, global IT spending will go up by 4.2% as compared to 2012. This is pretty good news indeed. One of the biggest reasons for this increase will be due to projected gains in the value of foreign currencies when compared to the dollar. According to Gartner, this increase in IT spending will happen across the board and will encompass data center systems, devices and enterprise software to name a few.
Enterprise software spending will see the biggest move with a 6.4% increase. By the year 2016, mobile data will account for 33% of the total telecom services market. Data center systems will see a 4.5% growth rate in 2013. This space will also touch the $147 billion mark this year.
