Why Read This Report

With US firms finalizing their 2019 tech budget plans, we provide our current forecast for the 2019 US tech market across multiple dimensions, including by tech category, by business technology (BT) versus back-office technology (BOT), and by new project spending versus tech MOOSE. CIOs should use these forecasts to gauge how their 2019 spending plans and mix of tech budgets compare with the overall US tech market, to identify areas where they might be over or underspending, where to expect tech bargains, and where demand will be so strong that vendors won't cut prices.
