IT Spending and Staffing Outlook for 2017: Efficiency Over Exuberance

December, 2016


Business leaders in North America are positive about the economic outlook for the coming year but not optimistic enough to open their wallets for the IT organization. In our annual IT Spending and Staffing Outlook, we provide guidance for IT executives as they firm up their plans for the coming year. This year, our report assesses IT operational and capital spending plans for 2017, priorities for IT spending and investment, and plans for hiring, outsourcing, and pay raises for IT organizations in the U.S. and Canada. It also provides a brief look at the outlook for the budget plans for IT organizations in the rest of the world. (28 pp., 27 fig.)
