August 2006 IT Organization Survey: CIOs Expect IT Organizations to Keep Growing

The first set of results from our new IT Organization survey reveals that the future of IT is brighter than many think. IT organizations grew 3.8% on average during the past 12 months, and 45% of respondents expect their companies to add full-time staff in the next year. The need for IT labor is leading companies to hire more outsourcers and contractors, but not necessarily at the expense of their in-house staff. In fact, only 27% of the companies that have cut back their full time IT staff say outsourcing is a reason. The bottom line: there’s little indication that IT organizations are withering away, despite the many changes taking place.
