Despite a challenging economy, 76% of CIOs interviewed recently said their companies will invest in information technology (IT) initiatives in the next 12 months.

 

Information security topped the list of projects executives expect their firms to invest in, with 57% of the response, followed by virtualization (36%) and data centre efficiency (33%).

   

The survey was developed by Robert Half Technology www.roberthalftechnology.com, a provider of IT professionals on a project and full-time basis, and conducted by an independent research firm. It was based on telephone interviews with 270 CIOs across Canada.

     

“Many companies recognize that investing in IT initiatives leads to improved security, efficiencies and revenues,” said Sandra Lavoy, a vice president with Robert Half Technology.

 

 

“Enhancing IT infrastructure will help organizations better prepare for growth when the economy rebounds.”
