Click through for results from a survey on application bloat conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of the Quest Software business unit of Dell.

While everyone wants IT to be more efficient these days, the fact remains that a lot of IT resources are being spent on supporting applications that are long past their prime.

A survey of 150 IT managers at organizations with over $500 million in revenue, and conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of the Quest Software business unit of Dell, finds that application bloat is rampant across the enterprise. This results in not only wasted spending, but actually less agile businesses. The challenge, of course, is getting the business to rationalize many of these applications in the name of the greater good.
