This IDC study examines the distribution of enterprise sector IT investments by company size. Business IT spending forecasts for the 2012-2016 period focus on market segments across hardware, software, and services, with additional breakouts according to company size classifications. The study is based on the data published in the 4Q11 release of IDC's Worldwide Enterprise Black Book.
"The distribution of revenue by company size in 2012 will reflect not only the fundamentals of technology demand but the elasticity of this demand to business sentiment as the simultaneous deleveraging of the consumer, the banking, and the government sector of the advanced economies continues," said Anna Toncheva, research director and economist with the IT Markets and Strategies group in IDC's Global Research Organization. "The bumpy and uneven nature of the global recovery will cause faster expansion of IT investment by medium-sized and small medium-sized businesses in emerging markets versus larger contributions to growth from medium-sized businesses in advanced economies."
