One part of those efforts will be in spending on devices 2021. Devices spending by EMEA organizations will move from a decline of 15.1% 2020 to an increase of 1.7% in 2021.
Thin and light notebooks spending is on pace to grow 10% and desktop-as-a-service platforms spending will achieve a steep increase of 60% in EMEA in 2021.
“The pandemic has forced employers to adopt remote working, turning it into a strategic workforce policy,” said Ranjit Atwal, research vice president at Gartner. “Mobile PCs are a necessity for remote work and EMEA organizations will re-focus some spending on mobile PCs.”
The speed at which remote working is occurring varies considerably around the world depending on IT adoption, culture, and mix of industries.

- Across Europe, U.K. remote workers will represent 48% of its workforce in 2021, while remote workers in Germany and France will account for 38% and 34%, respectively.
Investments in delivering technologies to support remote workers will fuel spending on these technologies in EMEA by 5% in 2021.
EMEA organizations will increase their total spending on collaboration and content platforms (17%), security software (11%) and cloud conferencing unified communications (4%) in 2021.
