The survey, conducted by next generation IT monitoring software provider ScienceLogic, found that lack of education is not the only headache employees will face in the coming year. While IT spend is increasing in 2014, survey results reveal a lack of industry investment in employees, with 40 percent of respondents confirming they would make the same or less money year-over-year in 2014.
Other key survey highlights include:
-- Overall IT spending in 2014 will increase by a net margin of 35 percent compared to 2013
-- Almost two thirds of respondents intend to increase their budgetary spend by 6-20 percent year-over-year
-- The ratio of respondents that will increase IT spend vs. reduce IT spend is 4:1
-- Organizations will spend the most IT dollars on network infrastructure, but there is a growing need to spend on additional storage, Big Data, and mobility-related infrastructure
