Tuesday 10 April 2018 | 16:37 CET | News
Worldwide IT spending is projected to increase 6.2 percent year-on-year to USD 3.7 trillion in 2018, according to a forecast by Gartner. Enterprise software spending is forecast to grow 11.1 percent, the highest growth in 2018. Barring unexpected disruption, the software industry is expected to continue capitalising on the evolution of digital business. Application software spending is expected to continue to rise through 2019, and infrastructure software will also continue to grow, bolstered by modernisation initiatives, researchers said.
