In a survey of 600 firms in accounting, law and marketing, CompTIA found that accountancy practices 'report notably higher satisfaction rates than law firms (net 88 per cent vs 69 per cent).'
Mindest has shifted
When asked about their expenditure plans, '21 per cent of accounting firms and 18 per cent of law firms say they intend to boost IT spending by 10 per cent or more over the next 12 months', according to the researchers. Looking at how attitudes have changed in these sectors, Tim Herbert, senior vice president, research and market intelligence at CompTIA, said: 'The mindset has shifted from the basic management of IT infrastructure as simply 'keeping the lights on' to a concentrated focus on innovation, integration and intelligence.'
