More than half of the organisations polled in the UK and Europe will see their IT budgets remaining the same or increasing in 2013, despite the difficult state of the economy. Computer Weekly and TechTarget's 2013 IT priorities survey, which polled over 800 IT professionals in Europe, shows that over a quarter (26%) expect their IT budgets to rise by more than 5%, while 12% are expecting their budgets to grow by less than 5%.  Another quarter - some  23% - expect their IT budgets to remain the same. Around 22% expect their IT budgets to reduce, with 10% expecting a reduction of more than 10% in their budgets, while 12% are expecting a  reduction of less than 10%. This may not be all bad news, however, as many organisations are reaping the benefits of lower IT costs following investments in cloud computing and virtualisation.
