According to the 2015 KPMG CEO Outlook Study of CEOs, 69% of CEOs in Europe, 66% in Asia Pacific and 52% in the US are more confident than they were last year about growth and the global economy in the next three years. In assessing their own company’s growth prospects, 70% of European CEOs and 68% of Asia Pacific CEOs indicated they are more confident than a year ago. In the US, where the recovery is well underway, 19% are more confident than a year ago with another 46% expressing the same level of confidence about their prospects for growth. Most importantly, CEOs globally are set to hire, with 78% of respondents indicating they are expecting to be in hiring mode through mid-2018.

Worldwide IT Spending to Decline 1.3 Percent in 2015
Worldwide IT spending is set to shrink to $3.66 trillion in 2015, a 1.3 percent decrease from 2014, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. Gartner said that the rising dollar is chiefly responsible for the slowdown.

The U.S. dollar spending on devices (including PCs, ultramobiles, mobile phones, tablets and printers) for 2015 is forecast to decline 1.2 percent to $685 billion. Spending for all devices in 2015 was revised down partly due to a slowdown in PC purchases in Western Europe, Russia and Japan, countries where local currency has devalued against the dollar. The mobile phone market is not as affected by the currency shifts. Substantial change in the phone mix in emerging markets toward lower-priced smartphones negates price increases of premium phones, resulting in flat phone average selling prices between 2014 and 2015.
