The CIO Tech Poll: Economic Outlook

The CIO Tech Poll: Economic Outlook study was conducted among heads of IT to gauge how current economic conditions are impacting IT spending plans in the U.S., as well as which technology areas are seeing budget increases in the coming year.

Key Findings Include:

  • IT budgets will continue to show overall increase in the coming year.
  • While spending in some technology areas is forecasted to remain flat, mobile, outsourced IT services (including cloud) and hardware will see increasing budgets.
  • New project spending is also on the rise, with enterprises focusing on the customer.
  • Technology budgets are primarily controlled by IT and when other departments do purchase technology, IT is usually involved on many levels.

The CIO Tech Poll: Economic Outlook was conducted through the CIO Forum on LinkedIn and the CIO customer database. Results are based on 209 respondents who indicated they are the top IT executive at their company or business unit.
