Large enterprises are spending "mucho dinero" when it comes to key business applications for their employees. These companies spent an average of $363 per employee on various biz apps, according to an exclusive CIO Insight survey of 295 executives responsible for budget decisions at organizations with more than 500 employees. See which apps took the biggest bite of budget pie in 2009. The results are part of our 2010 IT Investment Patterns study, designed and fielded by Ziff Davis Enterprise Research. The IT Investment Patterns study was conducted online between May 5 and June 1, 2010. A total of 695 respondents familiar with their organizations' budgetary and spending levels completed the survey. In addition to the 295 large-enterprise respondents, we also tallied results from 173 mid-sized businesses (50-499 employees). Results from the remaining small businesses, which have 49 employees or fewer, are not included in the study. You'll find the full IT Investment Trends report here.
