Gartner has revised downward its outlook for 2012 global IT spending from its previous forecast of 4.6 percent growth.  Worldwide IT spending is forecast to total $3.8 trillion in 2012, a 3.7 percent increase from 2011, according to the latest outlook by Gartner.All four major technology sectors computing hardware, enterprise software, IT services and telecommunications equipment and services are expected to experience slower spending growth in 2012 than previously forecast.

. In 2011, worldwide IT spending totaled $3.7 trillion, up 6.9 percent from 2010 levels. Telecom equipment spending is projected to show the strongest growth, with revenue increasing 6.9 percent in 2012, followed by the enterprise software market, which will grow 6.4 percent.

The Thailand floods, that left one-third of the country under water, are having serious implications for businesses worldwide, particularly with computer and storage purchases. “Thailand  being a  major hub for hard-drive manufacturing,  have taken a toll on global IT  hard drive  sales which is expected to  be reduced by as much as 25 percent (and possibly more) during the next six to nine months. Rebuilding the destroyed manufacturing facilities will also take time and the effects of this will continue to ripple throughout 2012 and very likely into 2013.”

The Making of Groupon IPO: Infographic

IPO Watch: Grouponzi
Research and design by Online MBA Site

Groupon, which is arguably the biggest daily deals service around and has been called the fastest-growing company in history, is edging towards an IPO and Online MBA has published an infographic that details the finances and timeline of the company. While Groupon had 2010 revenues of $713 million, it had a loss of $413 million. The company has more than 7,000 employees and the business grew 2,241 percent between 2009 and 2010.|
Groupon — which last month was rumored to be partnering with Foursquare — filed the necessary paperwork with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this month for its IPO, through which it hopes to raise as much as $750 million. The company was valued at $25 billion in March. However, the company’s business model has been criticized – it costs Groupon $1.43 to make $1 in revenue and existing Groupon customers are purchasing fewer deals than they used to.
When compared to Facebook and Google, Groupon is far behind in the revenue stakes. Those companies make an estimated $170 million and $2.86 billion per month respectively, although those revenues are company-wide and not restricted to their daily deals offerings — Facebook Deals and Google Offers respectively.
