Key Market Issues
Enterprise IT spending is anticipated to follow an upward trend after recovering from the macroeconomic debt crisis.
US businesses are expected to remain cautious in 2013, but there is clearly pent-up demand for ICT investment on projects delayed as a result of the economic situation.
In 2013, US enterprises are most likely to reduce their hardware expenditure and increase their spending on software and services.
The gradual increase in popularity of hosted data centres and cloud infrastructures as a measure of cost reduction, means that there is huge scope for the providers of hosted data centres, end-user computing and network infrastructure.
Kable's recent survey shows that the largest proportion of IT staff members has been resourced on applications, as US enterprises place a firm emphasis on ensuring that their business critical applications are operating well.
