A strong dollar will pressure global IT spending in 2012, predicts Gartner. The firm now expects spending to rise 2.5% in 2012 to $3.7T (prior forecast was for 3.7% growth). Enterprise software (+5%), telecom equipment (+6.9%), and computing hardware (+4.3%) are expected to be areas of strength, while telecom services (+1%, hurt by declining voice revenue) and IT services (+1.3%, hurt by cloud deployments) are expected to be weak links.
