This IDC study presents and evaluates IDC's worldwide top 10 IT spenders. This study is intended to help IT vendors have a better understanding of business imperatives and objectives driving investments in these large global companies. It can be also used as a benchmark to assist CIOs, IT executives, and line-of-business technology professionals in making more informed IT purchasing decisions.

"When it comes to IT innovation, the world's largest companies are often criticized as being risk averse, sluggish, and siloed," said Jessica Goepfert, program director of IDC's Global Technology and Industry Research Organization. "It's a fair observation, particularly these days when every IT dollar spent must be justified. That said, there is no denying that the IT budgets of larger companies are, well, larger. In addition, when acknowledged and appreciated, marquee organizations can be loyal, serve as references for industry peers, and also refer business to organizations' major vendors." To gain insight into this elite group of companies, IDC investigated the biggest of them all: the top 10 worldwide IT spenders.
