Wednesday 17 April 2019 | 13:42 CET | News
Worldwide IT spending will reach USD 3.79 trillion this year, an increase of 1.1 percent from 2018, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, which said it has revised its numbers a bit down from the previous quarter on the back of expected strength in the US dollar and continued volatility due to uncertain economic and political environments and trade wars. For 2020, spending is seen at 3.925 trillion, up 3.6 percent.
