The ALSO Group announces net profits for H1 2016 total €27.8 million, a Y-o-Y incresae of 14%, while net sales are up by "roughly" 3% Y-o-Y to reach €3771m. EBT is up by 12% to €40.3m.

ALSO"We are very pleased with our performance in the first six month of 2016," ALSO CEO Gustavo Möller-Hergt says. "We have again been able to increase profit significantly stronger than net sales, although we decisively invested in our business. We have developed our business in Poland and the Benelux and we will keep on expanding our activities."

The distributor points out somewhat softer sales in C. Europe (2% Y-o-Y growth), even if EBT margin is stronger compared to 2015 (1.5%), the result of profit stabilisation efforts in Switzerland and France as well as "above average" German results. Meanwhile the N./E. Europe segment sees sales grow by 11%, even if profits are down due to initial investments in Poland, Benelux and Finland.

E-mail Print PDF

EMEA PC shipments perform "above expectations" in Q2 2016 according to IDC, reaching 16 million units-- a -4.7% decrease, with W. European shipments stabilising at -0.8% Y-o-Y.

On the other hand CEE and MEA shipments remain "constrained" at -8.5% and -13.3% Y-o-Y respectively.

IDC EMEA PCs

Helping improve EMEA PC shipments are notebooks, with declines stabilising at -1.7% Y-o-Y, the first Y-o-Y comparison not impacted by Bing shipments. Notebooks actually drive W. European shipments with 4.1% growth, the result of demand from the commercial segment bringing about EMEA commercial notebook growth of 3.7%.

However consumer markets remain on the decline due to a difficult market created by the now familiar combination of volatile exchange rates, oil price fluctuations, macroeconomic and political developments.

Gartner: "Cloud Shift" to Affect IT Spending

E-mail Print PDF

According to Gartner over $1 trillion in IT spending will be affected by the shift to the cloud over the next 5 years, marking further proof of the cloud being "one of the most disruptive forces of IT spending since the early days of the digital age."

"Cloud-first strategies are the foundation for staying relevant in a fast-paced world," the analyst adds. "The market for cloud services has grown to such an extent that it is now a notable percentage of total IT spending, helping to create a new generation of start-ups and "born in the cloud" providers."

Gartner Cloud Shift

The shifting of IT spending from traditional offerings to cloud services-- or "cloud shift" is calculated by comparing IT spending on cloud services with traditional non-cloud services in the same market. Gartner estimates aggregate cloud shift will reach $111 billion in 2016, before growing to $216bn in 2020.
