About IT Trends:

Each year, SIM conducts a survey of its members to gauge trends within our industry. The responses from our experienced membership helps to benchmark various areas within the IT industry such as major issues, technologies, sourcing, CIO roles, staffing, spending, and salaries. The valuable survey input allows SIM to speak with a unified voice for our members, who are among the most accomplished and innovative leaders in the industry.

IT Trends is widely recognized as one of the most representative barometers of the information technology industry, and has been featured in major business and IT media as well as academic publications.

We had an all-time record of 1218 responses for the 36th Anniversary IT Trends Study. Result archive is available below. If you have questions please contact Lead Researcher



Sponsoring SIM’s IT Trends Study

To beat our record, the Study needs more prizes money for the Chapter Challenge Contest and that means more sponsors.  Sponsoring SIM’s IT Trends Study is an extremely economical way for vendors and service providers to keep their brand in front of SIM members year-round.
