I first joined the company back in 1984 to assist in the payroll department of Technic Services, one of our Recruitment Companies.

My initial stay was only meant to be short term, as I was returning to teaching (my profession) in the near future. Yet, I really began to enjoy myself, especially as my role was constantly expanding and my involvement within the company increased.

After gaining experience at a firm of Chartered Accountants I returned to the company in 1988 with the formation of Simon Holdings, the parent company of the Group. My part within that ‘project’ was to centralise and consolidate the administration and accounts throughout all the companies. This was the first move in bringing the companies much closer together.

Actually, it’s only when I think back that I realise how far we’ve come to reach our current home in the Clock Tower. There is no way I will ever forget our first office – a hut at Fairoaks, a small independent airfield near Woking. We had to call the Air Traffic Control Tower if we wanted the heating changed and there wasn’t even a loo. There’s nothing like the good old days!

Cloud, enterprise software to drive 2019 IT spending, says Gartner

Software as a service will boost 2019 enterprise software spending 8.3 percent. Overall, IT spending will grow 3.2 percent in 2019.

Global IT spending is expected to grow 3.2 percent in 2019 to $3.8 trillion as enterprise software, cloud and digital transformation projects boost growth, according to Gartner.

The projection, outlined at Gartner's Symposium/ITXpo in Orlando, accounts for a shift to everything as a service. John-David Lovelock, an analyst at Gartner, noted that enterprises are shifting to pay for use models and that's impacting for the forecast. 

For instance, software as a service will boost 2019 enterprise software spending 8.3 percent. IT services will grow at a 4.7 percent clip in 2019 due to digital transformation. Data center systems spending will grow 1.6 percent in 2019 since enterprises are more inclined to go cloud than buy their own gear.

The growth in IT spending is due to a favorable business climate, but there are a bevy of wild cards including tariffs and currency fluctuations. 

Other key points from Gartner:

  • Server sales will fall 1 percent to 3 percent every year for the next five years.
  • IT services will grow because enterprises are looking to optimize spending.
  • PC, tablets and mobile phone spending will grow 2.4 percent in 2019. Demand for enterprise PCs should remain strong until 2020 due to the Windows 10 upgrade cycle. But the PC market may be held back due to the Intel CPU shortage.
