IDG News Service (London Bureau) — Enterprises buying new mobile devices and investing in security and storage management will give IT spending a boost in 2013. Worldwide IT spending is projected to total US$3.7 trillion in 2013, a 4.2 percent increase from 2012 spending of $3.6 trillion, according to research firm Gartner, which is becoming a bit more optimistic about the global economy.
The company divides IT spending into five segments: devices, data center systems, enterprise software, IT services and telecom services.
All five segments will grow in 2013, but devices and enterprise software are the two segments that will see the biggest increases in spending during the next twelve months, according to Gartner.
