Nearly 1,800 IT decision makers participated in ETR’s most recent Macro Views survey covering high-level IT spend trends and organizational changes. The Macro Views report highlights data analysis from our ITDM community weighing in on IT budgets, spending priorities, hiring, Gen AI trends, vendor-specific impacts, and much more. Read on for some key takeaways in part one of our two-part series. This week we will focus on overall IT budget projections broken down by key demographics, such as Enterprise size, Industry, and Region. We will also take a look at key organizational patterns, such as IT deployments and hiring trends.
