2022 Role & Influence of the Technology Decision-Maker White Paper
Despite a series of setbacks that frustrated recovery attempts in 2021, businesses continue to forge ahead with digital transformation initiatives and their accompanying IT investments. Based on the 2022 IDG Role & Influence of the Technology Decision-Maker research, this white paper outlines the tech purchases that are likely to be made, who’s involved in these decisions, and the information sources they rely on.
The study found that 90% of tech buyers plan to either increase their technology budgets or hold them steady over the next 12 months, up from 76% who said the same in 2020, with software seeing the greatest budget allocation (35%).

To assist technology marketers as they plan out their strategies for the upcoming year, we’ve detailed the findings in this white paper.
