SEOUL (Reuters): Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will not use Qualcomm Inc’s processors for the next version of the South Korean technology giant’s flagship Galaxy S smartphone, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified sources. Such an outcome would be a blow for Qualcomm’s prospects for 2015, with the company already having guided for weaker-than-usual annual revenue growth in a five-year outlook issued in November. Samsung, the world’s No.1 smartphone maker, has been one of the US company’s top customers. Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 chip overheated during Samsung’s testing, Bloomberg reported.

SAP sees lower margins for years to come as cloud transition bites

Published : 12:00 am  January 22, 2015  |  Category: IT / Telecom  |  Leave a Comment  |  69 views  |  

Reuters: Europe’s largest software group SAP SE has cut key profit forecasts and abandoned a target for higher margins, saying its stepped-up push to deliver products via the cloud would dampen profitability until at least 2018. The German company is in industry race to deliver business planning software via cloud-based internet services, rather than as packaged software running on customers’ in-house computers. But it says this move will force it to backtrack on long-promised, oft-delayed margin gains that had been a big investor draw. SAP is battling alongside established US software makers such as Oracle, IBM and Microsoft to boost internet-based software sales and fend off pure cloud-based...

Global IT spending on pace to grow 2.4% in 2015: Gartner

Published : 12:00 am  January 21, 2015  |  Category: IT / Telecom  |  Leave a Comment  |  199 views  |  

Worldwide IT spending is on pace to total $3.8 trillion in 2015, a 2.4% increase from 2014; however, this growth rate is down from earlier projections of 3.9%, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. The slower outlook for 2015 is largely attributed to the rising US dollar as well as a modest reduction in growth expectations for devices, IT services and telecom services. “The change in forecast is less dramatic than it might at first seem. The rising US dollar is chiefly responsible for the change — in constant currency terms the downward revision is only 0.1%,” said John-David Lovelock, Research Vice President at Gartner. “Stripping out the impact of exchange rate movements,...
