I read recently in an article in InformationWeek that IT spending is balanced 80/20 towards maintenance over new projects. The Register has an article that goes over a survey showing that it’s not just the budget that goes that way. Most of IT managers time is spent making things work. This seems fairly resonable. I’ve not had any time recently on looking at new technology. I’m hoping to spend next year on implementing “new stuff” in the office, from replacing the wireless infrastructure, to replacing the switching infrastructure with all Ciscos.
