Datacenter heads hope for more revenue in 2010
"They're hoping to see budgets again in 2010," said Roger Kay, an Analyst with Endpoint Technologies Associates. "Some dough is what they'd like. They're all for refreshing clients now that [Microsoft's Windows 7] is here, and generally shortening the average system life, but they have been severely constrained this year."
Whether or not datacenter managers get this wish remains to be seen. According to research firm Gartner, worldwide IT spending slid 5.2 percent in 2009, while enterprise spending dropped nearly 7 percent. IT spending is expected to grow by 3.3 percent in 2010, but at the same time, more than half of all CIOs surveyed said that they expect their budgets to remain flat or decline in 2010.
It's not all about money, though. According to Bob Gill, an Analyst with TheInfoPro, IT professionals put virtualization and cloud computing high on their wish lists.
