Companies have been finding great advantages in cloud computing solutions, mobile device management and endpoint security options, and according to Gartner, even more companies will by next year.

Speaking at this year's Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, Peter Sondergaard, senior vice president at Gartner, said worldwide IT spending will surpass $3.7 trillion by 2013, according to InformationWeek. This means that the spending will increase 3.8 percent from 2012, with mobile, big data and the cloud being the biggest drivers. Worldwide spending is likely to surpass $4 trillion by 2015, Gartner said.

"While budget forecasts are just that--an educated guess at spending--the trends in technology were evident in both the keynoters and those tweeting in the audience," the news source said. "The role of the CIO is in the midst of changing from doing more with less to doing more with digital innovation."

The expansion of IT spending will also mean that 4.4 million IT jobs will be created by 2015, InformationWeek said.

Forbes reported on a study by the London School of Economics and Political Science, which showed that the United States is leading the way in terms of cloud job creation, with the smartphone sector alone creating 54,500 jobs by 2014.
