Data center systems segment to see reduced spending in 2019, Gartner says

Data center systems segment to see reduced spending in 2019, Gartner says Worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.79T in 2019, an increase of 1.1% from 2018, according to the latest forecast by Gartner ."Currency headwinds fueled by the strengthening U.S. dollar have caused us to revise our 2019 IT spending forecast down from the previous quarter," said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. "Through the remainder of 2019, the U.S. dollar is expected to trend stronger, while enduring tremendous volatility due to uncertain economic and political environments and trade wars. "In 2019, technology product managers will have to get more strategic with their portfolio mix by balancing products and services that will post growth in 2019 with those larger markets that will trend flat to down," said Mr. Lovelock. "Successful product managers in 2020 will have had a long-term view to the changes made in 2019." The data center systems segment will experience the largest decline in 2019 with a decrease of 2.8%. This is mainly due to expected lower average selling prices in the server market driven by adjustments in the pattern of expected component costs. Publicly traded companies that may be impacted by this include: Cisco (CSCO), Arista Networks (ANET), NetApp (NTAP), HP Enterprise (HPE), AMD (AMD), NeoPhotonics (NPTN), Lumentum (LITE), Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI), Finisar (FNSR), Emcore (EMKR) and (IBM).
