An exclusive survey of executives from leading IT suppliers by Microscope, Computer Weekly's sister magazine, reveals that they thought a recovery in the IT market had begun or would start next year.

Mike Jordan, chief executive officer of EDS, said, "We see early indications that businesses will start to invest again. There remains, however, a continued focus on generating high returns and near-term savings from IT."

Paul Walker, Sage chief executive, said, "There are signs that the cyclical factors are beginning to work themselves out."

Mark Rogers, Apple UK general manager, said, "We are starting to see an upturn in terms of corporate spending but that won't be sustained until the middle of next year."

Joe Tucci, chief executive officer at EMC, said, "In the UK, I definitely see light at the end of the tunnel. Budgets are still tight, but they are being spent."

Michael Boorman, IBM general manager of Global Business Partners, said, "While we cannot predict when an upturn will begin, we have seen increased opportunities in select industries and market segments."
