With people, businesses and things communicating, transacting and even negotiating with one another, a new world comes into being - the world of digital business. A digital business can use 3D printing, big data, IoT and smart machines to disrupt the way enterprises manage demand, execute supply functions and engage customers. While much of the opportunity in digital business is years away, there are business moments that will become digital business in 2015. This presentation is our first look at our 4Q14 IT spending forecast update; we will present global IT spending from 2012 through 2018 broken out by devices, datacenter systems, software, IT services, and telecommunication services. We then turn our attention to the near-term opportunities in digital business, the new business models, and the solutions they require that will occur in 2015.
