Drastic reduction in jobs among hardware manufacturers The most important providers in the hardware area are FujitsuSiemens, Sun, IBM, Hewlett- Packard/Compaq and Dell. The number of jobs at manufacturers of data- processing devices have been in decline since 1995. The number of jobs has dropped from almost 40,000 employees in 1995 to 22,247 in 2002. This is a drop of almost 44 percent. example: 4,000 out of 25,000 employees at IBM 1,100 out of 8,200 employees at HP/Compaq Approximately 450 out of 5,750 employees at FujitsuSiemens
The number of employees hit a historical low in 2002!(14.6% dropped)

Summary Decline in employment of about four percent in 2002 Hardest hit: The biggest declines is in hardware Decline in employment in services in 2002 as well Over 80 percent, the overwhelming majority of staff the ITC industry are employed in the service sector of the branch. Forecast: ITC is not very optimistic!
Why ITC go to Down??? Market saturation “Wintelism” (windows comes out with a new operating system with new programs requiring a computer with a fast processor) is no longer working The sluggish global economy Traditional IT hardware manufacturers increasingly penetrating the service market No new trends in sight
