A worldwide survey of IT managers has found that many UK IT departments are planning to increase spending in 2013, despite the current economic downturn.
The Computer Weekly/TechTarget IT Priorities Survey 2013 involved over 3,200 IT managers, with 76% of them expecting IT budgets to increase, up 57% from the same time last year. The increase in funding is believed to be linked to more positive economic signs and managers are looking to use the extra budget to expand the IT support they offer to help boost business growth further.
Data protection topped the list when it came to new IT initiatives, with money going towards more robust security. The survey found that server virtualisation was also a popular planned project, highlighting the cost cutting popularity of cloud services.
