Midwest business and IT leaders are bullish about the future, expecting growth over the next 12 months. And they are relying on technology to drive that growth as evidenced by a substantial increase in IT budgets, according to our Mid-Market survey of more than 780 C-Suite and technology executives.

This report, augmented by SWC’s experience, reveals four predominant traits of successful mid-market companies:

  • IT executives have a seat at the leadership table
  • They are migrating to the cloud for agility, scale and economics
  • They make data-based decisions about their growth
  • They realize they cannot afford to build IT teams that provide the breadth of expertise required today
