“Ongoing investment on hyper-scale data centers coupled with average selling price (ASP) increase is forecast to drive 13.6 percent revenue growth for data centers in 2022. Digitization and application modernization will trigger software refresh including ongoing SaaS adoption”, said Naveen Mishra, senior director analyst at Gartner.

While IT spending is expected to grow, it will be at a much slower pace than 2021 due to spending cutbacks on PCs, tablets and printers by consumers, causing spending on devices to shrink five percent worldwide. The global IT spending is projected to reach $4.5 trillion in 2022, an increase of three percent from 2021, according to the latest forecast by Gartner.
“Inflation is top of mind for everyone. Central banks around the world are focusing on fighting inflation, with overall inflation rates expected to be reduced through the end of 2023”, said JohnDavid Lovelock, distinguished research vice president at Gartner. Organizations that do not invest in the short term will likely fall behind in the medium term and risk not being around in the long term, he added.
The critical IT skills shortage being felt across the globe is expected to abate by the end of 2023 when the corporate drive to complete digital transformations slows down and there has been time for upskilling and reskilling of existing staff. However, in the near term, CIOs will be forced to take action to balance increased IT demand and dwindling IT staffing levels.
Worldwide software spending is expected to grow 9.6 percent to $806.8 billion in 2022 and global spending on IT services is forecast to reach $1.3 trillion. “Tasks that require lower skill sets tend to be outsourced to managed service firms to alleviate staff time, while critical strategy work, which requires high-end skills unobtainable by many enterprises, will increasingly be fulfilled by external consultants”, said David.
