It’s rare for me to come across a client that is not experiencing budget reductions across their business.
Perhaps it’s CIOs and CTOs being smart with their money and realizing that they really don’t need new computers, OSs, and applications as much as the vendors try to push their wares.
Perhaps it’s partly impacted by the BYOD movement and employees bearing some of the costs of devices, apps, and service plans.
Perhaps it’s simple cost-cutting – businesses trying to stay afloat in the sea of regulation and taxation. I can’t imagine this will change for the better in the next four years.
