10 Technologies that survive budget cuts

I recently read an article in entitled “10 Technologies that survive budget cuts”. It summarizes the findings from a recent Robert Half survey which polled 1,400 CIOs to learn which technologies they plan to invest in.

While the results are interesting to read, I do have one fear. I fear some people read these surveys, hear about the hot new technologies that others are implementing, and convince themselves that their company needs it too.

In reality, the only technologies that should ever survive budget cuts are those which generate or save more money than they cost to obtain. Don’t invest in technology simply because it’s popular today. Figure out what will benefit your company the most, and then do it.

Here’s the right way to do it: This company analyzed 9 different products before making a decision, and it really paid off.
