Forrester recently surveyed 878 IT decision-makers at North American enterprises. Forty-eight percent represent enterprises with 1,000 to 4,999 employees, and 52% represent companies with 5,000 or more employees.
Per the report, in the context of custom development and integration projects, 56% of the firms interviewed have standardized on the .NET platform, with 44% on J2EE.
Also of interest, spending on CMS technologies was leveling off, however 30% of the firms reported they would increase ERP spending to support compliance requirements.
Depending on the Forrester methodology, one would think such a response masked a considerable budget for ECM compliance projects.
Enterprises are outpacing SMB almost 2:1 with regards to CMS adoption. 28% of the Enterprise organizations interviewed had CMS systems in production, compared to 16% of the SMB's. 25% of the SMBs reported they were currently considering a CMS purchase (!).
On the portal front SMB's lagged further behind with 13% having a portal in production as compared to 31% for enterprises. Again they represent a larger market opportunity with 27% reporting they were considering a purchase versus 21% of Enterprises. Read the report. (Forrester) Download PDF. (Microsoft)
