Published by the Finnish Information Processing Association, the yearly IT Barometer charts the importance of IT to Finnish organizations. In the IT Barometer, we study Finnish IT and business management’s views on how IT is utilized in their organizations, how IT produces value for their business, and what factors and competences are seen to contribute to future success.
This is the fourth IT Barometer and during these four years, we have seen dramatic changes in IT and the role of IT in Finnish companies. During these four years, we have gone through one downturn and we are now potentially entering another. During 2009, 2010 and 2011, we have monitored the effect that the general economic trend has on IT and perceptions on IT. During these four years, we also have seen the rise of consumerization, including social media services and a new class of smart phones and tablet computers. IT has also undergone a process of consumerization – new services and devices now first come to consumer markets and move from there to corporate use – oftentimes after years of delay.
