The IT Industry Business Confidence Index released Thursday by CompTIA, the information technology trade association, points to renewed optimism and a strengthening economy. Healthcare advancements are key to the uptick.
The index, an average of sentiment about the economy, IT industry and individual companies, jumped seven points in December. At 60 on a 100-point scale, the index is now at its highest point since its inception, say CompTIA execs.
Data from the global survey of more than 1,100 IT companies suggests momentum will continue. IT company executives forecast an additional five-point increase in confidence over the next six months to 65, moving the rating into a solidly positive range.HEALTH IT
