This Webinar presents Forrester's updates to our forecast for business and government purchases of technology goods, services, and staff in the US for 2014 and 2015.


  • A better US economy will lead to tech market growth of 5.7% in 2014 and 6.6% in 2015.
  • Consumer-facing technologies will have the strongest growth, but employee-facing technologies will also do well. Weakest growth will be in infrastructure technologies.
  • The outlook for purchases of computer equipment, communications equipment, software, IT services and outsourcing, telecommunications services, and CIO organization staff in the US in 2014 and 2015.

  • We compare tech purchases by consumers versus business and government for the US.
