Cost-cutting will finally slow in 2011

Can we finally see the light at the end of the tunnel? Nobody's won the lottery yet, and most continue to watch spending closely, but responses show promising signs of economic improvement. Only 9 percent of responding companies are still cutting back, while 54 percent are making at least targeted investments. In 2011, as the economy continues to improve and companies seek to accelerate revenue growth, there will be an increasing shift from cost-cutting purchases to more opportunity-based technology investments.

Each year, attendees of The Experts Conference (TEC), sponsored by Quest Software, are surveyed on technology trends, best practices, current issues and priorities, and TEC 2010 – the ninth annual event in the series – was no different. Quest experts Gil Kirkpatrick, chief architect, David Sengupta, chief architect and Microsoft Exchange Server MVP, and Dmitry Sotnikov, director of cloud solutions, analyzed the survey results to cull key predictions and trends for the coming year.
