Small Businesess Leading Tech Recovery
Tech spending is up 7.5% this year. And surprise -- it's not the huge corporations leading the way. Small and midsize companies are leading this upswing. That's the word from a recent USA Today article.
The article quotes research firm Precursor, stating that small and midsize firms will account for about 45% of tech spending this year. And, midsize firms, those with 100 to 1,000 workers, are spending eight times faster on tech than are big corporations.
