Corporate IT Strategy 2012
Whilst cost cutting was the key goal across all business sectors in 2011, 'doing more with less' through optimisation and innovation is the mantra for 2012 and a significant percentage of CIOs are expecting IT expenditure to increase this year. Budgets across all sectors as a whole will be concentrated on key business applications, alignment of IT and the business and Risk Management. There is also substantial planned focus on infrastructure investment with the added twist of 'working smarter'.
With almost 700 responses from over 150 organisations, the Forum's latest research reveals the priorities of IT decision makers and provides a real world indication of where the UK's largest users of IT are heading in 2012.
