Gartner forecasts global enterprise IT spending will rise 2.5% next year to $2.68T. Investors should be aware these estimates get revised frequently - 4 months after hiking its 2012 IT spending growth forecast to 3%, Gartner claims 2012 will only see "scant overall growth" due to macro issues that have clearly pressured (I, II) many enterprise IT names. Decent IT spending growth from financial services, telecom, and media companies is expected to offset continued government weakness.
