Thailand's information technology (IT) spending is expected to exceed 10 billion baht this year, fuelled mainly by imminent third-generation (3G) full commercial service, says EMC, the global information management vendor. 

Nathakorn Potejanasaja, the country manager of EMC Information Systems (Thailand), said enterprises - mainly in the telecommunications and banking sectors - are spending more on data centres to serve increasing data demand.

Companies now spend about 37% of their IT budgets on strategic projects compared with 30% in recent years, with the remaining 63% going to maintain IT infrastructure, he said.
