What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Despite the drive to cut costs across government, many public sector organizations are still spending steadily and expect to promote successful innovations through IT investments.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Spending on IT will mostly follow an upward trend due to recovery from the macroeconomic debt crisis and gradual improvement in the US economy.

Key Market Issues
IT expenditure on the service desk, communications, and IT management is expected to remain relatively low in 2012, as compared to other functions, perhaps reflecting the reluctance of organizations to invest in their business expansion in the current economic climate.

A large proportion (about X%), on average, of Canadian enterprises' total IT budgets is being allocated to internal development and maintenance.

The rising demand for multiple communication devices, such as smartphones and tablets, along with the gradual adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs, mostly by large businesses, have made client computing a necessary choice for enterprises.

Enterprise customers of all sizes are opting for an "on-demand software" delivery model in which software and its associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud.
