[USPRwire, Wed Dec 23 2015] High labour costs may lead Australian enterprises to early adoption of artificial intelligence applications such as IBM's Ask Watson services which have been championed by ANZ Bank. We believe that, emerging technologies aside, the growth outlook in Australia is stable and progressive. The Australian macroeconomic growth is the crucial variable here as any potential slowdown could i nevitably put downward pressure on market spending.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: AUD8.2bn in 2014 to AUD8.8bn in 2015, up 7.7% in local currency terms. Slowdown in tablet demand due to market saturation will be offset by a stabilisation in desktop and notebook sales in 2015 due to design innovation in the hybrid notebook market.
Software Sales: AUD4.7bn in 2014 to AUD4.8bn in 2015, up 2.4% in local currency terms. Security software will outperform, particularly for small- and medium-sized enterprises and consumers - but the effect of XP enterprise upgrades will be diminished.
IT Services Sales: AUD9.7bn in 2014 to AUD11.0bn in 2015, up 12.9% in local currency terms. IT services will be fastest growth area of the IT market over the medium term, with cloud services the key growth driver as local companies try to use efficiencies enabled by the national broadband network.
