IT directors say war with Iraq is unlikely to affect IT budgets

Only 17% of IT bosses believe a war with Iraq would affect their IT budgets, according to the results of this week's Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question survey.

With the prospect of a war against Iraq looking more likely by the week, 77% of IT managers said military action would not have any impact on their IT budgets.

"It really depends on the impact of the war on the economy," said one IT manager, reflecting widespread business uncertainty over the implications of a war.

Some economic analysts have argued that a war could provide a short-term boost to the global economy, providing a respite from the current economic gloom.
