However, for this initiative, Sungard AS sought answers to wide-ranging questions spanning the entire IT landscape, an inclusive approach that reflects the expanding influence of digital disruption and technology development.

The results highlighted in this global survey, and compiled in the Little Book of IT, include insights into how decision makers invest and innovate, where they allocate IT budget and staffing resources, and which technologies they adopt, as well as their organizational priorities and business drivers.
