The Brexit Impact on IT Spend in the U.K. and Western Europe: A Scenario Analysis

IDC - The Brexit Impact on IT Spend in the U.K. and Western Europe: A Scenario Analysis

The recent UK political and economic situation has delivered a number of issues arising from the recent UK referendum and the vote in favour of the UK leaving the European Union. So regardless of whether a post-Brexit UK were like Switzerland (in the Single Market, but with no MEPs), Albania (following Single Market rules, but no MEPs), or meant the UK is entirely out of the EU and European Economic Area, the rules and standards set in Brussels would have huge and continuing influence on the UK IT industry. There is still so much to negotiate, but no matter what the outcome might be, the global impact on technology will be significant. 

To help you cope with this uncertain scenario and have a clearer perspective of what's coming next, IDC has a dedicated team of expert analysts working on the different forecast scenarios you can encounter after Brexit: Three scenarios for how Brexit will impact Information Technology spending in Europe.
