ICT Investment Trends in Italy: Prudent fiscal policies and slow economic recovery impacting ICT investments

Summary
"ICT Investment Trends in Italy", presents the findings from a survey of 95 Italian enterprises regarding their Information & Communications Technology (ICT) investment trends. The survey investigates how Italian enterprises currently allocate their ICT budgets across the core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure: hardware, software, IT services, communications, and consulting.

The report illustrates the core technologies that enterprises are investing in, including IoT, business intelligence, enterprise applications, and cloud computing. The survey also highlights the approach to purchasing technology adopted by enterprises in Italy. Through GlobalData’s survey, the report aims to provide a better insight to ICT vendors and service providers when pitching their solutions to enterprises in Italy.

With the ongoing recovery from economic stagnation and bailout of two regional banks at a whopping sum of EUR17 billion (US$19 billion) in June 2017, the Italian government is set to continue with strategic fiscal reforms to get the economy back on track. In June 2017, the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) predicted Italy’s GDP to grow by 1% in 2017 and then edge down to 0.8% in 2018.
