The picture in Europe is very fragmented. Our research shows that growth in spend on CRM software correlates strongly with economic growth measures such as gross domestic product. GDP growth in countries such as Italy and Germany remains lower than the rest of the world, while market growth in countries such as the UK, Sweden, Norway and Denmark has been more consistent with that in North America. This means we are seeing CRM growth rates ranging from a slight negative to more than 27% depending on the individual country."
