There’s not much doubt of the hot spots for IT spending over the next few years: the BRICS.
According to this piece on ZDNet, while Europe remains transfixed viewing a Greek tragedy, other countries, notably the BRICS, are pushing ahead in terms of IT spend.
- Brazil IT spending will rise 9 percent;
- Russia will increase 11 percent;
- India will be up 16 percent;
- And China’s tech spending will jump 15 percent
That spending means we can expect large increases in new IT projects – or perhaps I should say business projects delivered through IT.
Will the BRICS do a better job of the project management and delivery of these IT projects than we’ve managed in the developed world? Well, let’s just say there’s plenty of useful best and worst practice for them to take on board.
