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.
