Larger companies likely to put IT on hold
Larger companies are more likely to put IT projects on hold due to economic conditions, according to a Vanson Bourne survey of 100 UK IT directors for JD Edwards.
Nearly half of respondents with revenue above #250m said IT projects were at the whim of the economy, but only 28% of firms with revenue between £50m and £250m said the same.
However, 55% of all respondents said electronic interaction with partners had increased during the previous six months, and 45% are planning collaborative IT projects.
The retail, transport and distribution sector was found to have the most “progressive” attitude towards its supply chain, with two-thirds increasing their electronic interaction over the past six months, while under half of the finance and manufacturing sector respondents had increased electronic interaction.
