Why Read This Report

CIOs feel ambivalent about tech budget benchmarks. They need them to respond to CEO and CFO questions about tech spending levels, but they also know the top-line metrics don't really say much. This report provides the top-line tech budget benchmarks for 2017 that CIOs and tech leaders can use to show how their IT spend compares to others. We provide detailed metrics on tech budget composition to help CIOs figure out how to improve the cost/value equation for their firms' tech spending and the value that the technology function provides to the business.
