The Impact of the Economic Slowdown: What They Said

While the survey was conducted before the September 2008 Wall Street meltdown, a third of the midmarket IT executives said they were not being impacted by the economic slowdown.

Of the two-thirds who said they were impacted, 43 percent said the economic slowdown has made their jobs more stressful.

Other effects of the slowdown:

  • Limits ability to expand: 31 percent
  • Decreases company efficiency: 17 percent
  • Raises concerns over a less stable and less secure infrastructure: 17 percent
