"Whereas Hungarian enterprises had positive expectations regarding the economy in 2011, their outlook this year has become more conservative. The primary business goal of most companies is to maintain previous revenue levels, while also increasing profitability at least slightly. This business environment has resulted in IT being considered either as a cost center or as an instrument for lowering corporate costs. Thus, IT services spending has been cut further, and approved IT investments remain primarily aimed at cost efficiency." – Senior Research Analyst Balicza Gabor, IDC Hungary
