IT leaders have lower expectations for budget increases for the coming year, yet confidence in the IT department’s ability to meet business demands continues to grow. This conviction may partly be attributed to the consistency seen in the IT leaders’ views on the biggest impact areas to the business—security, business intelligence (BI) and Big Data, mobility, and cloud. There is also significant alignment in numerous categories, including the areas in which organizations expect to spend their budget, the most challenging IT roles to fill, the areas in which IT leaders are expecting salary increases and the IT roles that are most critical to success in 2015. While budget growth expectations for 2015 are lower than 2014’s, IT leaders are still very optimistic about the coming year.
