This IDC Insight examines the global small and medium-sized business (SMB) market for advanced technology products and services. Total IT spending is presented for 2016-2017, along with the baseline year of 2015. Detail on spending totals is provided for hardware, software, IT services, and business services. Additional technology detail, country detail, and forecasts through 2020 are available through IDC's SMB Spending Guide, which is scheduled for introduction in October 2016.Worldwide SMB IT spending continues to grow beyond the half-trillion-dollar threshold at roughly 1-2 percentage points over the rate of GDP by region as companies step up technology investment to stay competitive. Increasing investment in technology is an appealing way for firms to expand their capabilities without necessarily increasing their head count. Technology spending will continue to vary by company size, geography, and IT category, with solutions-oriented spending (especially related to cloud and mobility) showing the greatest growth. IDC also noted that SMB IT spending will be approaching $600 billion in 2017.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
