Click through for results from a Capgemini survey on rising application costs.

For all the complaining about the cost of IT, the root cause of most IT expenditures continues to be an almost insatiable appetite for applications among business users. A new survey of 100 companies of different sizes, conducted by Capgemini and Hewlett-Packard, finds that IT organizations are struggling under the weight of extended application portfolios. But the study finds that many of those applications are redundant, resulting in ballooning IT costs.
