Summary
While other advanced economies have been facing slow economic growth, the performance of the Australian economy over the last few years has been commendable which can be attributed to factors such as the strength and stability of the Australian financial system, the fiscal and monetary policy response, flexibility of the exchange rate and the performance of its major trading partners, particularly China. The confidence around the country's economy is being reflected in enterprise ICT investments, as most enterprises in Australia are spending significantly across all major technological areas.

Key Findings
- Kable's survey reveals that in order to reduce and control operating costs and keep a focus on their core activities, Australian enterprises are also planning to outsource their infrastructure and help desk functions through to the end of 2016

- To react to changing market dynamics quickly, Australian enterprises are increasingly spending on business intelligence tools, with the highest proportion of respondents planning investments in data warehousing/marts and social sentiment analytics in the next two years

- With the majority of respondents having expressed their intention to invest in server and storage virtualization technologies in the next two years, there are good opportunities for vendors operating in this space
