Eighteen percent, on the other hand, stated that aligning IT to changing business landscape was their top priority, while 12 percent stated their top priority was building better tools that help management make better business decisions. Respondents of the survey are all IT decision makers in the Asia-Pacific excluding Japan region, and they expected an increase in IT spending in the following IT Trends in the region: virtualization and automation driven needs (39 percent), big data/analytics (34 percent), mobility related (34 percent) and datacenter expansion (34 percent). To support the IT trends growth, respondents also expected hardware related spends to form a large chunk of the IT spends. In the space of mobility, the adoption of media tablets in organizations has increased. Twenty-two percent of the respondents showed intention to procure tablets within the next 12 months as opposed to only 12 percent in 2011. Respondents were asked if their organization prints documents using mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets (e.g. iPhone, BlackBerry, iPad etc). Twelve percent of the interviewed organizations replied ?yes? and of that at least one-third of the respondents stated they experienced an increase in the print volume and expected to see an increase the next year. However, it is notable that 70 percent of the respondents said their printing infrastructure was not designed and optimized for the unique business processes and document workflow. ]]>
