Make Way for Increased IT Spending in the Peach, Lone Star and Sunshine States

    Online News published in DMReview.com
December 16, 2005

A recent IDC study examines the top ten states for business IT spending from 2005-2009. Of the top ten, Georgia, Texas, and Florida are expected to have the fastest growth rates over the course of the five-year period. Not surprisingly, as three of the largest states in the country, California, New York and Texas topped the charts as the biggest spenders on business IT in 2004. These three states alone accounted for 30 percent of total spending on business IT within the U.S. last year, with the top ten states as a whole accounting for 56 percent of the total spend.

Generally speaking, the healthcare, life sciences, high tech, banking, financial markets and communications industries will all be key contributors to the future health of IT spending in these states. In terms of technological focus, refreshing the infrastructure and expanding the network of connectivity will continue to be the focal point in many companies, with the fastest acceleration to be enjoyed by vendors of smart handheld devices, volume servers, systems infrastructure software and services spending on operations and maintenance support.

Aside from these common threads, which shed light on the general direction of business IT spending within the United States, Jessica Goepfert, program director for U.S. Verticals Research at IDC, explains that future IT spending within these states really hinges on their individual climates and that "although the ten states profiled are similar in terms of their overall average growth, each state has its own story and key vertical industries on which it is banking."
