Why Read This Report

If 2016 was a year of political and economic disruption, with the Brexit vote in the UK and the election of Donald Trump in the US, 2017 has been a return to normality. As fears have abated and the prospects of major shifts in US fiscal and tax policies diminished, economic growth has strengthened in many countries. In response, tech spending will also improve, driven by a focus on business technologies to win, serve, and retain customers, expanded cloud options, and more investment in analytics. This report helps CIOs set their priorities in this improving environment.
