Government Leads IT Spending

Government Leads IT Spending

Government sector spending is expected to lead all market areas worldwide, according to a new report by Gartner Inc. of Stamford, Conn.

In a survey of 589 organizations worldwide, Gartner examined IT spending budgets by industry and found the economic climate has not deterred the "type A" or leading-edge adopter industries from increasing their budgets as a percentage of revenue.

Government, which some consider type A because of e-government initiatives, shows an increase of 18 percent between 2000 and 2002, followed by telecommunications services, which is expected to increase IT budgets as a percentage of revenue by 13.9 percent.

The survey, conducted between March and June, showed 56 percent of respondents plan to spend more on IT in 2001 than they did in 2000.
