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 per cent in 2011, reaching 963.4 billion euros ($1.25 trillion).
In Europe, France enjoyed a 3.4 per cent increase in expenditure.
The EITO highlights the substantial upsurge — by 4.2 per cent — in the French infrastructure software segment in 2011. This trend is expected to continue in 2012, with a forecasted 4.8 per cent rise. The growth in this segment is primarily the result of rising sales in storage- and security-applications solutions, boosted by the proliferation of Cloud Computing offers.
Also according to the EITO, the worldwide IT market in 2012 will grow by 5.4 per cent, exceeding 1,000 billion euros in sales for the first time.
