Demand for enterprise software on the rise worldwide


As companies look to the latest technology to develop their business, the global demand for enterprise software is set to rise, according to one report.

Gartner recently released its IT spending forecasts for 2014 and estimated the total global spend on IT will reach NZD$4.6 trillion this year, representing a 3.1 per cent increase from the previous year.

Looking at the Asia Pacific region independently, IT spending in this area is expected to grow by 4.2 per cent from last year to total NZD$917 billion this year – although this growth is slightly lower than the 4.7 per cent recorded between 2012 and 2013.

According to Gartner, growth in spending would be witnessed in almost every IT segment, from devices and data centre systems to IT and telecom services and enterprise software. However, it is that final category that is set to lead much of the growth, as spending on enterprise software is forecast to grow by 6.8 per cent to reach NZD$387 billion this year.

It is no surprise that businesses are increasingly looking to invest in the right software for their business, as practically any area of your company can now benefit from harnessing the right software solution.

One area your business can benefit from is through business strategy software, which can help your organisation manage its strategic planning in the clearest, most efficient manner possible.
