BFSI and IT/ITES sectors biggest spenders
This year too there was no exception with BFSI and ITES sectors being on top of list. The IT investment of INR 3388 crore by 106 IT companies and INR 2438 crore by 127 companies in BFSI sector again made these sector rank higher on the list of mega spenders. "More and more companies from these sectors have reflected a positive trend in IT investment leading to more sophisticated usage of IT but, more importantly, this has resulted in increased IT spending across verticals", said Mr Kunal Bag, Chief Editor of PITS-1000 Survey report.
Additional findings from PITS-1000 survey include the following:
TCS, SBI and Wipro are Top 3 IT spenders in year 2011-12

The latest survey was conducted in the month of March/April, 2012 and involved 3500 companies from twenty five different verticals. Data collection was via internet surveys, personal, computer aided telephone interviews, with the questionnaire translated to the local language wherever deemed appropriate and necessary. After the data collection and validation of all the companies involved in survey, companies are ranked on the basis of their IT spending and the PITS 1000 list is generated for 1000 companies.
