Only six per cent expect a decline

Two-thirds of IT companies expect growth in 2013

A survey conducted by CompTIA has found that the majority of companies in the UK IT channel expect growth next year, with 22 per cent expecting growth of more than ten per cent.

Apparently three in ten of the 400 UK companies surveyed expect things to remain the same, while only six per cent anticipate a decline in business.

The buoyant mood means that 63 per cent of respondents intend to make investments in technology in 2013, while 64 per cent said that shifting to a new business model was vital to their long-term success.

“Several disruptive developments in the IT industry are driving transformation,” said CompTIA’s industry analyst, Carolyn April.

“The growing influence of cloud computing; the need for new and varied skills; changing customer buying options; expanded competition; and opportunities to specialise in a particular industry or customer segment all are having an impact.”
