The CIO Magazine Tech Poll results for April show strong signs of growth in projected information technology (IT) spending. For the third consecutive month, chief information officers (CIOs) predict increasing spending projections.

In this month's poll, respondents predict spending growth of 7.9 percent during the next 12 months, compared with last month's 6.4 percent. Respondents also predict growth in spending for security software, application software, infrastructure software, telecom equipment and data networking equipment. In the April poll's special question, a majority of CIOs (61.2 percent) report they consider their own IT infrastructure to be solid and a strong differentiator. Slightly more than 18 percent (18.1 percent) rate their infrastructure as average, meaning they are just getting by. The remaining respondents view their IT infrastructure as both brittle and a potential corporate risk (9.6 percent), or outdated and a significant corporate risk (4.8 percent)
