Featured Data: Q2 shows strongest IT spending outlook among US businesses since 2011

2017 04 19 COTW


The latest Voice of the Connected User Landscape (VoCUL) corporate survey shows major improvements in US business IT spending for the second quarter of 2017. Spending is up a net nine points since the previous survey in November 2016, building on the four-point improvement we saw in that period. The latest findings represent the best IT spending growth rate in six years.

More than one-in-five (21%) survey respondents report that their company's IT spending will increase for the second quarter of 2017 – up five points from our previous survey. Meanwhile, just 14% of respondents say their IT spending will decrease (or there will be none at all) in Q2, which represents a four-point improvement – and the best level since 2007.

Of the 10 IT spending categories tracked in the survey, Software: Enterprise Applications (change in net score is +5) and Application Development Software/Tools (+5) are showing the biggest spending increases.

This survey encompassed 1,428 respondents from 451 Research's VoCUL leading indicator panel who are involved with IT spending in their organization. The February 2017 survey focused on overall IT spending, as well as corporate demand for smartphones, tablets and PCs.
