Mid-market bullish on IT spend

Most medium-sized businesses expect their IT budgets to increase in the coming year, according to a global study commissioned by IBM.

Of the 100 UK companies included in the survey, 62 said that they expect their IT spending to grow, compared with just 11% when the same survey was conducted in 2009.

The study also detected a change in mindset between 2009 and today. Two years ago the study found that 47% described their company’s primary focus as efficiency and cost control. This year that figure dropped to 19%, while 81% said that "growth, innovation and the customer" were the priority.

The study defined mid-sized companies as those with between 100 and 1,000 employees.
