The tech industry will see modest but steady growth this year, according to a combination of survey findings and "year ahead" forecasting from CompTIA. The resulting "IT Industry Outlook 2016" report reveals that sector executives express steady confidence in the business climate for the next 12 months. They're optimistic about reaching new customer segments while increasing sales from existing customers. Meanwhile, markets such as cloud apps/software as a service, infrastructure as a service and mobility are expected to emerge as top growth drivers. "2016 will be a pivotal year for organizations pursuing digital transformation strategies," reads the report. "While companies large and small have embraced cloud and mobile over the past five years, it will take more than the adoption of these technologies to realize the benefits of digital business. The pressure will be on for C-suite executives to drive the realignment of business models and workflows to ensure harmony with existing technology investments, while incorporating new data analytics, social and automation elements." Here's a look at key takeaways from the report, including a number of 2016 predictions.
