10% of IT budget seems high.  It would be nice if someone provided an industry breakdown.  I can’t imagine that certain industries are even close to this number.  Resource links to the posting are below.

    Hi Jason

    Lots of people do studies like this, only you have to pay to play and you can’t use the data anywhere else.

    According to Forrester, it’s something along the lines of 7-10 percent, depending on how regulated the industry is. Government is at the top, with banking just a notch below.
