Mobile apps and tablets are the areas identified most frequently for investment, according to CIO Research's poll of IT executives. However, analytics, cloud and enterprise security spending aren't far behind.


More than half of CIOs (53 percent) plan increases to their overall IT budget in 2014, according to's most recent Tech Poll conducted in November 2013 among more than 200 top IT executives.

This figure is up from 48 percent in a similar poll conducted at the beginning of 2013 but is relatively consistent with the 51 percent reported roughly a year ago.

CIOs, on average, predict overall budget increases of 5.2 percent, down slightly from 5.9 percent in the February, 2013 poll but up from the 3.9 percent reported in the fall of last year.
