IT spending is on the upswing. According to Gartner, 2014 is on track to see a 2.1 percent increase over last year. The picture looks even brighter for 2015, with predictions of a 3.7 percent gain over this year. Where will IT and business leaders be spending their tech dollars?
A recent survey by Tech Pro Research asked IT professionals about their major budget priorities for 2015. Topping the list were improving efficiency and business processes, using tech to increase productivity, managing risk, and reducing IT cost. In concrete terms, that means many budget discussions will center on things like WAN optimization, big data solutions, cloud migration strategies, and investments in mobile business applications.
