Economic Crisis Response: Western European SMB IT Spending 2008-2012 Forecast Update

This study presents an update of the forecast of IT spending by company size considering the impact of the current economic crisis on Western European SMBs.

Data is consistent with IDC's Black Book 3Q. For the purpose of this study, smart handheld devices are not included in the IT perimeter. Spending refers to the business segment only - IT spending in the home sector is therefore not included.

IT spending data is provided by:

Company size:

  • Small businesses (1?99 employees)
  • Midsize businesses (100?499 employees)
  • To allow for comparison, IT spending details are also provided for large businesses (500?999 and 1,000+ employees)

Vertical markets:

16 industries, (with sub-vertical details according to the General Industrial Classification of Economic Activities within the European Union divisions)

"In this time of economic downturn, the midmarket - 100-499 employees and 500-999 employees - will prove to be more resilient and will show the highest IT spending growth rates," said Giuliana Folco, research VP, Industry Solutions.
