The Gartner IT Spending Forecast, 2Q21 Update: Build Budgets Taking Off

| 1 hour

In 2021, IT budgets will drive overall spending. While many companies still suffer revenue declines, IT spending is accelerating ahead of revenue expectations. However, this acceleration will be as uneven as the economic fallout from COVID-19. Boards and CEOs are much more willing to invest in digital business, the IT that has a clear tie to business outcomes, but less so for everything else. This complimentary webinar delves into the technologies and market approaches that will win as technology spending enters a new build budget phase. We also look at the global IT spending of both enterprises and consumers.
