Large telecom firms each spend on average £15m on system software. This is by far the highest investment made among large information & communication companies. Information services organisations are next in line with an expenditure of £6m.
For all auxiliary financial & insurance companies the spend on system software per employee is some £400. This is 3 times that for all UK organisations. The distribution by size of organisation varies from £500 for large auxiliary financial & insurance firms down to £200 for the smallest concerns.
Companies undertaking head office activities are expected to experience the fastest growth in system software spend during 2014. The growth is projected to be 15%. Close behind are gambling & betting firms followed by research & development organisations.
Telecommunications companies spend on system software per employee increases substantially with size of organisation. The largest firms' expenditure is over twice that for medium sized concerns. For all employee bands the outlay is dramatically greater than for all UK organisations.
Beverages & tobacco manufacturers with 1000+ employees spend over £1.2m each on system software. This is 40% more than large transport equipment makers. They in turn have an expenditure which is twice that of pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Spend per employee on system software by all printing companies is half that for UK organisations. The comparative ratio is smallest for printing firms with 1000+ staff whilst those employing fewer than 10 people outspend their UK counterparts.
Both electronic & optical and electrical manufacturers have a similar sized workforce yet the former outspends the latter on system software by a factor in excess of 3. The difference is more pronounced for those firms with 1000+ employees where the factor is 5.
