In pictures: 10 trends in IT spending for 2014

After years of maintenance-only spending, IT leaders are ready to invest. Find out which technologies - and which IT professionals - are pulling down the dough.

No risky business While dollars earmarked for training, infrastructure project services, and application and infrastructure outsourcing services will remain pretty consistent with last year's spend, nearly half of IT leaders surveyed said they expect to dole out more on consulting services as they begin to implement new applications and build out modern infrastructure.

"IT spending is a shadow of the overall economic conditions," notes TEKsystems' Hayman. "It's very similar to what's happened with the stock market. People stood on the sidelines until they were comfortable with the underlying conditions and have jumped back in. They're not making risky investments, but ones that they're pretty sure will have a solid return on investment. You could say the same about IT leaders' views towards IT projects and initiatives."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
