New Computer Technology research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2013 -- US IT spending is expected to reach US$634bn in 2013, up 8.5%, with BMI leaving its 2013-2017 forecast largely unchanged, but extended, this quarter, despite a further contraction in PC sales in H212. Meanwhile, as political negotiations concerning the 'fiscal cliff' continued in the wake of the November 2012 elections, public IT procurements remained constrained due to the budget constraints faced by many government entities. Overall moderate growth in budgets is expected but much depends on the economic situation. Despite a drive to cut expenses across government, many public sector organisations have appeared willing to continue to spend on IT, but the government hopes to make savings in its US$80bn IT budget. US businesses remain cautious, but there is pent-up demand from projects delayed as a result of the economic situation and cloud computing is expected to be increasingly important.

- Software Sales: US$170bn in 2012 to US$186bn in 2013, an increase of 9.4%. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, but more investment is expected in utility software and serviced-orientated architectures rather than traditionally-packaged PC software.

Key Trends & Developments

- In late 2010, the US federal government adopted an ambitious Cloud First cloud migration strategy, which tasked government agencies with migrating 80 services to the cloud within 18 months. The government hopes to eventually realise savings of up to US$12bn per year from the move. This push for web-based computing is part of a broader government effort to consolidate its 2,100 data centres by at least 40 per cent by 2015.
