With economic forecasts plunging since mid-year, what will be the impact of a weaker economy on IT spending in the next 12 months? Tech investment remained broadly resilient in the first half of 2011, but a recent slowdown in PC sales could be a leading indicator for weakening demand in the coming months. With the European debt crisis still lingering and threatening the very existence of the European single currency, what would a double-dip recession mean for IT vendors?

In this IDC Web conference, IDC’s IT market analysts and economists will review the current state of the global economy and IT spending, answering such questions as:

  • What is the likelihood of a double-dip recession in the next 12 months, and what would this mean for IT spending?
  • Which regions are most at risk of a downturn in 2012, and which will prove most resilient?
  • What areas of IT spending are likely to be protected during a weakening of overall budgets, and which would fall victim to contingency planning?
  • What should IT vendors be doing now to prepare for short-term volatility in the months ahead?
