Global IT outsourcing spend to exceed $250bn in 2012

This year will see over a quarter of a trillion dollars spent on IT outsourcing globally, but Western European organisations are holding back investments in the uncertain economy, according to the latest research from Gartner.

The analyst company predicted $251.7bn will be invested in IT services in 2012, a 2.1% increase on last year, but spending in Western Europe will fall 1.9% as economic turmoil continues to blight the region. Datacentre outsourcing sales, which represented 34.5% of the market in 2011, will decline by 1% in 2012, the analyst firm predicted.
