The economic hardships hitting businesses worldwide over the last several months have compelled may an IT department to steer costly new initiatives into indefinite holding patterns. However, these stalled technology upgrades are beginning to find new corporate support. A new survey by Robert Half Technology reveals some organizations are finally planning to implement projects that earlier had been shelved due to the recession. More than one-third of CIOs interviewed said they were moving forward with plans to implement software and hardware upgrades that had been deferred.

Great story

Jack, great story and thanks for including my comments.

An additional observation on this. While many companies have outsourced IT services during the recession, it's siloed their IT strategy. With IT investments starting to come back online, companies are naturally looking to centralize their IT tools and processes. Because let's face it, there's no better way to manage your IT strategy than to have it centralized in-house.
