MW IT Index: 1Q15 Edition

MW IT Index Published In The Register


The first quarter of 2015 conveyed a mixed but optimistic forecast for the coming year, more stable than previous quarters while featuring noticeable trends like the ascending US Dollar and a continued push for higher margin services.


This was one of the primary conclusions of this quarter's MW IT Index, featured today in leading global online technology publication The Register.

The Q1 MW IT Index   
As with all previous editions of the MW IT Index, expect the same high quality quarterly commentary based on our curated market-value-weighted indexes representing the IT Services & BPO, IT Supply Chain, Software and SaaS industries, as well as our India and China Editions covering each country's respective IT Services industry.

But starting this quarter, you can also expect The Register to work with us in hosting the commentary and providing a public forum for discussion and debate.

We encourage you to read the document and post your feedback below the article. As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and your own impressions of the ever-changing IT space.
The Register  

Looking forward, expect this to be a year of steady growth for most sectors of the IT industry, taking advantage of spending increases forecast by some analysts to reach $681 billion (up 4.8% from last year and growing at a CAGR of 4.5% through 2018). Expect hardware to see the lowest growth while services lead-particularly high value services like SMAC (social, mobile, analytics, cloud).
