2016 TEKsystems Midyear IT Reality Check

Key points from this Infographic

  • With the percentage of IT leaders experiencing budget decreases at a four-year high, it seems clear that senior leadership at many organizations expect functions outside of the IT department to drive their own technology initiatives.
  • IT leaders’ confidence in their ability to meet overall organizational demands rose to all-time highs as compared to previous years.
  • TEKsystems believes there is a correlation between the decentralization of technology initiatives and spending, and the schism between confidence in meeting organizational demands versus the ability to manage new initiatives.
  • While networking was a higher priority at the beginning of 2016, the growth of cloud adoption and Internet of Things (IoT) projects has initiated a shift in required IT skill sets.
  • Programmers and developers, project managers and software engineers remained highly difficult-to-fill positions.
  • The number of IT leaders expecting budget and full-time staff increases both rose, as did those expecting budget and full-time staff decreases.
