Why Read This Report
IT budget benchmarks enable organizations to gauge their IT spending relative to their industry peers and provide a starting place to have meaningful discussions around the size and composition of their IT investments. To help CIOs defend their budget levels and/or build the case for increased IT spending, Forrester provides our annual IT budget benchmarks by industry, based on data from our global IT budget and spending surveys. This report provides a look at the 2011 IT budget benchmarks based on a survey conducted from March to May 2011. The results indicate continued budget restraint among CIOs with a focus on decreasing MOOSE (IT spending to maintain and operate the organization, systems, and equipment) in order to open opportunities for growth and new initiatives.
