IDC Sees More Strong IT Spending in 2006

Fueled by purchases that accelerated in the second half of last year, worldwide IT spending in 2006 will cruise upward at a healthy rate of 6.3 percent, according to IT market research firm IDC.

A report released today by International Data Corp., of Framingham, Mass., cited two main reasons for the trend: economic stability in the United States, Europe and Japan, and "continued robust growth" in emerging markets.

Software buys will grow at a rate of 7 percent, while hardware and software purchases will increase by 6 percent, according to the report.
