A new study by International Data Corporation (IDC) highlights IT solution investment plans in the Western European professional services industry and the consulting, accounting, legal, architecture and engineering, and IT subindustries.

The study found that:

• 37.2% of professional services companies plan to invest in project management, making it the third most important investment space. Legal, accounting, and architecture and engineering companies will be the most active in this space (56.2%, 53.2%, and 43.5% respectively). Project planning and scheduling is the fourth largest solution area by investment plans for 2013, confirming the growing interest in project-related solutions.

As in previous years, security and storage remain the key investment areas for 2013 — 63.3% of interviewed Western European professional services companies say they plan to invest in security solutions and 42.8% of professional services companies report that they plan to invest in storage, showing a continued commitment in these spaces.

Timesheet management follows, with 34.6% of professional services companies planning to invest. This solution is particularly important for consultants and lawyers as a means of tracking costs and for resource allocation, and therefore for improving performance and highlighting problems.

“Professional services companies around Europe are more dynamic in IT spending than the average Western European market and want to achieve an improved use of IT,” said Angela Vacca, research manager, IDC European Industry Solutions. “Security solutions, storage, and project management are the top three solutions under the spotlight for 2013, as these are key for project-intensive companies.”
