“Computerworld’s annual Forecast survey of IT executives shows that IT budgets are indeed continuing to make a nice recovery. Some 43% of the 194 respondents said that they expect their IT budgets to increase. That’s up from 36% in last year’s study. This year’s average anticipated uptick is 13.1%, and overall, the expected changes in IT budgets reported by all respondents average out to 4.3%.”
As companies continue to invest in IT infrastructures, growth in IT jobs is expected to follow projected budget growth. InfoWorld recently published a piece on exactly what employers will be looking for in the coming year.
