Which Way Is Your IT Budget Heading?

Telsyte released an interesting report yesterday. Their research found almost two-thirds of the 263 IT decision makers they surveyed expected their budgets to increase this year. The main reason is the need to invest in big data and analytics tools to support sales and marketing, and to prepare for the data deluge that IoT will bring.

This is good news for IT departments – the extra cash will mean some companies will see new tech come in and perhaps even more jobs, professional development opportunities or improved salaries.

But what are you seeing? When I last ran an IT team, my budget was under constant pressure. Are the purse strings loosening?
