Tower predicts bank IT spending will grow

Tower projects that total EU IT spending will decline slightly this year from 2002's levels, due largely to divestitures and outsourcing deals in Germany, where banks are seeking immediate cost savings. But in a pan-EU analysis, Tower says IT spending will grow over the next three years, from a total of Eur97.9 billion this year to Eur107.8 billion in 2006.
