According to new research from Compass Intelligence, small and midsized firms will increase their information and communications technology (ICT) spending by 6 to 8 percent a year through 2012, accounting for $413 billion that year.The five-part report, entitled "Economy 2.0: New Challenges & Opportunities in Business ICT Spending," says that U.S. businesses will spend $688 billion on ICT services, equipment, outsourcing, and personnel, this year, with small businesses accounting for 32 percent of that. By 2012, small businesses will be spending nearly $280 billion, according to the report, while midsize businesses will spend more than $133 billion. Managed and hosted services, wireless, and some networking are predicted to be the fastest-growing technology sectors.
