2016 IT Budget Survey Results

The Spiceworks 2016 State of IT report was recently published and cites major trends for IT budgets in 2016. The report outlines the results of a survey of more than 800 IT professionals about this year’s budgets and how they’ll spend it.

Here’s a quick look at the top trends:

        •   While 56% of respondents expect their
            company’s revenues to grow, 42 % say
            IT budgets remain relatively flat and
            nearly 60% don’t expect their IT staff
            to increase. Looks like they’ll expect
            to be doing more with less.

        •   Security attacks are rising, but budgets for security are stagnant. 59% of IT professionals feel their companies
            don’t invest enough in security.

        •   Technology end-of-life (EOL) is strongly influencing budget spend in 2016.
