Spending on information technology increased in 2014, and there is cautious optimism that this trend will continue in 2015, according to the results of DATA Inc.’s third annual information technology survey, released today. In this year’s IT Decision 2014 survey, 81 percent of respondents indicated that their firm’s IT spending increased from the previous year, the same figure as reported last year. While 90% of this year’s survey participants said they don’t expect information technology budgets to decrease in 2015, only 56% believe IT expenditures would increase. “Technology initiatives continue to drive companies’ efforts to improve their internal processes, as well as efforts to better connect with customers and key stakeholders,” said Conrad Leao, DATA Inc. Vice President of Operations. “Among our customers, we see this IT investment in the form of leveraging Big Data, evolving computing platforms and the creation of innovation applications, to name a few.” A report of the results can be found online at here.
