Morgan Stanley surveyed 150 CIOs from companies with annual revenue between $500 million and north of $20 billion. Morgan Stanley reports 4.6% IT spending growth in 2013 and expects 2014 spending increase of 4.5%.
The surveyed CIOs' "spending mindset" continues to shift toward growth investment and away from cost-cutting.
Cloud computing, ERP and business intelligence are the top three CIO priorities for 2014. Companies are moving more applications from on-premises servers to vendor data centers. They are also investing in ERP (enterprise resource planning) implementations, data warehouses, business intelligence tools and analytics wares.
