The Wall Street Journal commented on a survey of 46 CIOs, which indicated that companies this year are expected to spend more on IT. Counter intuitively, it is the rush towards the Cloud that causes it. Organisations now need to manage increasingly complex technology environments that include a mix of cloud providers as well as on-premise infrastructure. New security challenges also need to be managed. Budgets growth of over 4% is expected, up from 1.5% the year before.
