In InformationWeek Research's Global IT Strategies 2001 study, two in five organizations worldwide express apprehension about their weakening national economy and almost one-third report similar anxiety toward the global economy. But are such concerns impacting IT spending plans? Or are businesses committed to information technology as a strategic source of new revenue?

To understand how IT issues help shape and are shaped by global E-business, InformationWeek Research interviewed 894 IT and business professional spanning 25 countries and 6 languages.

Report findings cover whether IT investment remains a key force in business growth, the role the economic slowdown has impacted E-business initiatives domestically and internationally, and different approaches and hurdles to competing in the global connected economy.

Study respondents are segmented by country of origin and aggregated into four global region - North America, South America, Europe and the Pacific Rim - to spotlight specific approaches to global commerce among the study's 25 nations. Overall trends, investment strategies and IT staffing practices are also covered. And to illustrate company tactics internationally, findings are also sliced by business model to enable analysis of B2B, B2C and B2B/B2C operations on a global scale and by company size to further examine commitment levels to global commerce.
