Gartner says “IT Buyers are focussing on reducing IT costs”

There’s nothing new under the Sun. Just when we were all starting to wonder what IT Buyers in the USA did between 9 to 5, Gartner has used it’s time wisely and taken the time to find out. 

IT buyers in the USA have a high focus on IT costs, according to Gartner. It would appear that IT buyers in the US pay less attention to business innovation in IT as a driver for using IT services. The survey revealed companies belonging to all sizes, showed a movement away from aggressive adoption, and indicated their top driver is to reduce the operating costs of IT and to ensure IT availability. In addition, 60% of US buyers had renegotiated service contracts in the past two years, while 47% said they had found cost savings by using offshore services delivery, and 40% indicated the use of technology as a service as an IT cost reduction driver.

So now you know; or maybe you knew anyway.
