The research firm Gartner forecasts a 3.8 percent increase in global IT spending in 2013, to $3.7 trillion and says that one of the big drivers of spending is going to be on big data systems. Big data is going to have a big impact on IT spending globally as the Gartner research firm forecasts that it is going to create a demand for 4.4 million big data-related jobs globally, 1.9 million of them in the U.S. Gartner forecasts total IT spending to rise by 3.8 percent in 2013 to $3.7 trillion globally, up from the $3.6 trillion that is expected when the books are officially closed on 2012. Gartner released the forecasts Oct. 22 at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo that it is hosting in Orlando, Fla.
