Measures of enterprise size have surprisingly little to do with the IT service areas selected for cost reduction. In fact, most enterprises follow a similar cost-cutting path regardless of number of employees, size of IT, or company revenues.
In the first quarter of 2009, Info-Tech surveyed IT leaders to find out about their cost reduction activities and behaviors. The survey delved into nine major IT spending areas, as well as demographic data, including:
- Total number of employees
- Number of IT staff
- Annual revenues
- Size of IT budget
