Overall IT spending will go up in 2018, says Gartner, and spending on one of the sectors – communications services – will also go up, but more slowly.
Enterprise software is the fastest growing sector, at a
forecast 7.6% this year and 8.6% next year, after 5.3% last
year. The market for data centre systems will grow more slowly
than communications services, only 0.3% this year and 1.2% next
year, says Gartner.
