This year will see IT spending rise for the first time since the global recession took hold, although a full-scale recovery is unlikely in the short term, analysts have predicted.

Around a third of businesses expect their IT budgets to increase in 2010, according to a worldwide survey carried out by analyst house Ovum.

Ovum is attributing this positive prediction to a general sentiment that the global economy is showing signs of recovery.
