Enterprises To Boost 2005 IT Spending 3.9 Percent

From the IT Utility Pipeline.

Despite some apprehension about business next year, a research firm's survey says that enterprise-sized companies will spend more in 2005 wider on IT.

Other technologies will draw interest in 2005, said Forrester's Pohlmann, including server virtualization and automated provisioning. The former garnered news this year with EMC purchasing VMWare early in 2004 and Microsoft finally entering the market with its Virtual Server 2005 this summer, and will be on 29 percent of the surveyed firms' buy list next year. EMC/VMware holds close to a 4 to 1 advantage over Microsoft in that market, however, as the vendor which will be considered the most.
