European Enterprise Services Survey, 2015: IT Budgets and Investment Priorities
This IDC study is based on IDC's European Enterprise Services Survey, 2015 carried out in February to March 2015 among 805 European organizations. The study focuses on the IT budgets, strategies, and investment priorities of the respondents. According to the survey, almost half of respondents have increased their IT services budgets in 2015. Infrastructure is still the key investment area, but the importance of cloud for infrastructure modernization has made it a top priority compared with previous years. Other 3rd Platform technologies are less important, but it is obvious that they are moving up the investment agenda.
"The survey shows that IT investments continue to be a high priority in driving business change," said Mette Ahorlu, research director, IDC European Services. "Optimization and infrastructure still dominate the picture, but we see the stability of the market as a good sign that will enable organizations to focus on transformation and the business impact of the investments."
