IT spending on (slight) rise, mobile tops the list

By Dan Muse , CIO |  IT Management, insider, IT spending

More IT leaders plan to invest more in technology this year than they did in 2012, according to a recent Tech Poll/Tech Priorities survey conducted by CIO Research. But, before you get too excited, it's only a few more IT executives planning to spend and it's only a little more money.

Forty-eight percent of CIOs surveyed expect to spend more this year, up slightly from the 46% who planned to spend more at this time last year. The average increase expected is 5.9% (up from 4.4% a year ago).

Not surprisingly, given the rush to adopt BYOD policies, mobile spending tops the list with 59% of respondents reporting that they plan to increase spending in that area. Forty-four percent of the CIOs surveyed say that they already have smartphones in production at the business unit, division or enterprise level. And 22% report they are currently piloting tablets.
