Gartner Says Cloud and CRM Will Drive Enterprise Software Spending in 2013 and 2014

Public Cloud Is Growing in North America and Western European Markets, but Private Cloud Remains the Preference in Emerging Markets

Analysts to Discuss Future Trends in CRM at Gartner Customer Strategies & Technologies Summit 2013, June 5-6 in London, UK and the Gartner Customer 360 Summit 2013, May 1-3 in Orlando

Greater adoption of on-premises and software as a service (SaaS) will drive a modest increase in worldwide software spending through 2014, according to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc. Gartner conducted the large-scale enterprise IT spending study through the third quarter of 2012 for analysis of enterprises' IT budget spending plans for 2013 and 2014.

"Results from the survey indicate that software spending will increase modestly worldwide through the 2014 budget year, with new software sales (on-premises) and SaaS driving this increased spending," said Hai Hong Swineheart, research analyst at Gartner. "However, significant regional differences in priorities and drivers will require vendors to pursue market-specific strategies." 

Regions with higher IT maturity, such as North America and Western Europe, expect lower or no budget increases over the next two years, while developing countries with immature IT infrastructure, such as Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia/Pacific, will experience the largest budget increases in software spending.

The Forrester SaaS ITSM Tool Market Overview: Who Is Where With What | Forrester Blogs

The Forrester SaaS ITSM Tool Market Overview: Who Is Where With What | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

It’s finally here. The Forrester Market Overview: SaaS IT Service Management Tools covers: a little ITSM tool history and how we have moved on, the benefits and risks of the SaaS delivery model, key selection criteria for selecting a SaaS (or on-premises) tool, and overviews of 23 tools (from 21 vendors) and their functional capabilities across the enterprise and midmarket marketplaces.

“Why on earth did you write a SaaS-only ITSM report?” I hear some cry

It’s simple – Forrester client demand. In 2012, a good 25% of my 1000+ a year client inquiries related to IT service management (ITSM) tool selection; and the SaaS-delivery model (and the key vendors) was covered in nigh on all of them. That’s not to say the client ultimately went SaaS though, inquiries are very much about rapid information exchange in helping clients make important decisions. It’s not about making the decision for the client.

What the SaaS ITSM market looks like

The following figure shows the 23 vendor tools split by average customer subscription (seat) count (described as Enterprise, Upper Midmarket, and Lower Midmarket) and their degree of customer success (the number of paying customers):
