alphadogg writes “The US IT market will grow by 6.6% as high-tech spending rebounds in 2010, according to Forrester Research’s latest estimates. The research firm based its projections on data reported for 2009, though its fourth quarter numbers are incomplete. Forrester says hints of a recovery surfaced in the third quarter, and now the company expects the global IT market to grow by 8.1% in 2010. Forrester’s US and Global IT Market Outlook: Q4 2009 reads: ‘The tech downturn of 2008 and 2009 is unofficially over, while the Q3 2009 data for the US and the global market showed continued declines in tech purchases (as we expected). We predict that the Q4 2009 data will show a small increase in buying activity, or at worst, just a small decline.’”
