Australia is bucking the global trend in declining public sector spending on IT and technology products, with federal, state and local governments here forecast to grow by 5.8% to $10.8 billion by the end of this year, and to almost $12 billion by 2019.
66% of Australian CIOs believe non-IT departments will ‘eventually’ spend more than central IT procurement as businesses face a new wave of technological disruption in 2015.
The growing digital economy is fuelling Australian spending on technology products and services, with the total spend expected to grow by 4.1% next year to $78.7 billion. In New Zealand, IT spending will reach NZ$11.6 billion over the course of next year.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
