Gartner predicts 2.9 percent growth in IT spending in 2017

InfoWorld - Wed, 10/19/2016 - 11:19

Worldwide IT spending should rebound in 2017 with a 2.9 percent increase over 2016, after a slight decrease this year, according to Gartner projections.

Spending on software and IT services should drive the 2017 growth in global IT spending to $3.49 trillion, the market research group said Wednesday. Gartner projects IT spending will drop by 0.3 percent between 2015 and 2016, with the U.K.'s Brexit vote to leave the European Union swinging IT spending from a modest increase to negative numbers.

Driving the spending growth in 2017 will be businesses' efforts to expand, John-David Lovelock, Garter's research vice president, said by email.

Cisco revs up storage connections for data centers and WANs

InfoWorld - Wed, 10/19/2016 - 08:12

Data is piling up, and storage keeps getting faster thanks to flash, so the networks that link it all together need to keep up, too.

Both traditional Fibre Channel and more general-use protocols used in storage keep steadily ratcheting up performance. On Wednesday, Cisco Systems is boosting the speed of long-distance storage links for disaster recovery and business continuity. It’s also introducing higher speeds for IP (Internet Protocol) storage networks in data centers and enhancing its software to simplify storage management.

Fibre Channel hangs on as the glue that binds together SANs (storage area networks) because it’s dependable and secure, said 451 Research analyst Steven Hill. A majority of large enterprise installations use it even though typically cheaper IP-based systems like iSCSI have been around for years, he said.
