Priorities 3Q 2006

IT confidence is faltering as we head into the third quarter. Concerns about the U.S. economy, industry conditions, and business prospects drove down the IT Confidence Index 7.6% to 1,232, a level not seen since September 2003. Is this translating into IT budget cuts? Are projects stalling? Find out what's in store for the coming quarter in InformationWeek Research's Priorities 3Q research. Business and technology priorities, IT spending plans, and IT hiring plans are documented in this 10-page report.

Key report areas include:

  • IT budget allocations
  • Business priorities
  • Technology initiatives and product plans

Responses are trended with previous InformationWeek Research Priorities studies to reveal changing IT and business practices. The study also features InformationWeek's IT Confidence Index which measures and tracks the business outlook of professionals who control or influence their organization's IT spending.

This study allows your organization to benchmark its IT budgeting, business priorities and technology plans.
