Between January 1, 2008 and February 28,2009, Enterprise Management Associates sampled an IT buyer population of 3,954 for quantitative research across a broad array of topics from virtualization, to service desk adoption, to end-to-end application management, to patterns of CMDB System adoption, among others.  Throughout the course of this research, EMA consistently asked questions regarding IT budgets, including the percentage of increase, decrease.  In certain reports, budgets specific to certain management software initiatives were also singled out, as were questions regarding shifting priorities in the downturn. Research analytics also allowed EMA to assess these trends in terms of company size, verticals, and geographic clusters.

This report provides quarterly insights into IT budgetary trends and suggests that while IT spending overall is modestly on the decrease, management software as applied to certain key areas, such as virtualization, process automation and CMDB System adoption, appear to be bright spots in an overall dark economic constellation.  A few sample quotes from focal interviews underscore the fact that many of these solutions are viewed as part of the cure rather than the “disease” – as IT organizations and the businesses they support seek to work smarter and differently than before.
