Recession or Recovery?

And what is IT doing to answer the question?
You can bet that the economy will be at the top of everyone’s mind at Oracle OpenWorld this year. Oracle and Oracle partners will be taking the lead, presenting new ways in which technology and software can help your company make it through budget cuts and reorganization. After all, in most companies, IT plays a key role in cutting cost, improving productivity, and raising efficiency. But as some IT departments already recognize, it’s also time to prepare for moving ahead when the economy starts to turn around.
The latest issue of Profit magazine hits the streets this week, and it features a series of articles on the current state of the economy as it relates to IT. You’ll get big-picture strategies on preparing for recovery, practical tips on first steps, and advice on IT investments—including insights on whether you should finance them.
