Industry analyst reporter Tekraticovers survey results from Forrester Research who asked large European firms to list their top IT priorities for 2005. Here is a summary:


2005 IT Priorities of European Enterprises

  • Infrastructure consolidation: Almost two-thirds of European enterprises plan to prioritize efforts to consolidate existing IT infrastructure -- a quarter of them consider it a top priority for 2005.
  • Security and business continuity: Nearly 60% of European firms rank the upgrade of their security systems as a high priority; 48% of them intend to renew existing disaster recovery capabilities.
  • Packaged applications: Forty-nine percent of European enterprises place the deployment or upgrade of a major application software package as a top IT priority in 2005.
  • PC refresh: Forty-eight percent of European enterprises will replace or upgrade their existing PCs.

If you compare this to our latest IT Priorities results (March data coming soon), you won't draw anyexact parallels, but consolidation and security are also among the top 5 initiatives for US companies.
