What IT are European businesses outsourcing? Survey part 4.

Over the last two days I have reported the findings of a survey looking at the IT services plans of businesses in Europe and North America. This survey was compiled by TechTarget, which is Computer weekly’s parent company.

Part one looked at how IT services budgets will change next year. See it here.

Part two revealed what the drivers for I service budget increases and decreases are. See it here. 

Part three revealed the main influences on supplier selection in Europe. See it here.

Today in part four, I can reveal which technologies European businesses are planning to outsource. Next week technology by technology I will report which suppliers are being chosen.

See table below for results.
