According to the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO), worldwide IT expenditure is experiencing substantial growth rates in emerging countries and should have risen by 4.3% in 2011, reaching €963.4 billion. In Europe, Germany stands out, as it exceeded the European average and experienced a significant increase in expenditure, up by 4.3% in 2011, while France enjoyed a 3.4% increase.
The EITO highlights the substantial upsurge - by 4.2% - in the French infrastructure software segment in 2011. This trend is expected to continue in 2012, with a forecasted 4.8% rise. The growth in this segment is primarily the result of rising sales in storage-and-security applications, boosted by the proliferation of Cloud Computing offers.
Also according to the EITO, the worldwide IT market in 2012 will grow by 5.4%, exceeding €1,000 billion in sales for the first time.
