Budget increases in the UK are healthy with 71 per cent reporting an increase or at least no cut and 37 per cent expect an increase. For the first time Harvey Nash broke out the findings from Scotland and found that Scottish CIOs are more confident than the rest of the UK that the right skill levels are available to them locally. Like their cross-border cousins 76 per cent believe the organisation needs to embrace technology. IT budgets are lower in Scotland, with 20 per cent having a budget of below $1m and 36 per cent of them expecting a budget cut. Perhaps the cuts are expected as 11 per cent of the Scottish respondents were from the public sector.
