“After the previous years’ decline in systems and server shipments, strong growth was witnessed in 2003. Due to restricted IT budgets and the increased length of purchase cycles, however, vendors will be inclined to remain cautious. As the large business sector starts to focus on total cost of ownership and return on investment, it is to be expected that the SMB sector will become more important in generating revenue for vendors.” Philip Korinek, Research Analyst – CEMA.
