In 2019, the 2018 trend continues and accelerates :

1/ We'll spend even less on maintenance and more on innovation

2/ Most of the growth in computing is driven by new markets,
called SMACS (social, mobile, analytics, cloud, security)

3/ We notice a hypergrowth in Cloud Activities for some vendors.

Key points for this quarter

Gartner breaks down its IT spending forecast into five segments: data center systems, enterprise software, devices, IT services and communications services.                   
Gartner analysts also identified 10 emerging technology trends within the above segments that are likely to drive this growth, including three cloud technologies: (IAAS) infrastructure as a service, (IPAS) integrated platform as a service, and (CPAS) communications platform as a service. Other technologies to watch include workstream collaboration, workforce analytics, video message-oriented middleware, cybersecurity, analytics and storage, all of which are linked to enabling organization’s digital transformation efforts.”
