    The Recovery of IT Spending in 2021

    In a remarkable bounce back from the onset of the worldwide pandemic, three quarters of companies this year are poised to increase their IT operational budgets, a record in the cloud era. Organizations across nearly every sector and company size are planning IT budget increases in line with pre-COVID-19 economic conditions. Are happy days here again? Mostly, with some caveats.

    IT Staffing Levels Flat as Cloud Shifts Focus to Higher-Level Skills

    IT operational budgets in 2017 are growing modestly, but that growth is not being mirrored in IT staffing levels, which are essentially flat at the median. According to Computer Economics, fewer than half (49%) of all companies in its newly released IT Spending and Staffing Benchmarks 2017/2018 study are planning to increase IT headcount.

    Outlook for IT Spending and Staffing in 2010

    After a year of budget cuts, layoffs, and delayed projects, IT executives can look forward to 2010 as a period of stabilization and rebuilding. Our latest annual fourth-quarter survey shows that median IT budgets will rise slightly in the coming year and that nearly half of all IT organizations are launching new projects. This report assesses the spending and staffing actions IT managers are currently taking, how severely they cut IT spending and staffing over the past year, and what they are including in their budget plans for the year ahead. Our outlook report provides 2010 forecasts for IT operational spending, IT capital spending, and IT hiring by organization size.(26 pp., 25 figs.)[Research Byte and List of Figures]

  • IT Best Practices - Where to Invest Your IT Budget Now

    Where to Invest Your IT Budget Now

    The biggest question on the minds of CIOs today is where to focus--or rather refocus--IT budgets. Should they retool for an economic recovery, or place emphasis on maintaining the current infrastructure in view of a delayed recovery and a restrained IT spending outlook. Short of a strong fourth quarter uplift, indications of a recovery could be delayed until sometime in 2004. In this article, Computer Economics offers advice on where to put the precious budget dollars for a wide range of economic outcomes.
