IT Industry Business Confidence Index: July 2013

In July of 2013, the CompTIA IT Industry Business Confidence Index held steady in Q3, coming in at 57.9 on a 100-point scale compared to a 58.0 reading in Q2. The index is a measurement of technology business sentiment produced for the past five years by CompTIA. The forward-looking component of the index projects a gain of 2.7 percentage points over the next two quarters. Of the index’s three components, assessment of the overall U.S. economy continues to lag: 48.3 vs. 62.0 for the overall IT industry and 62.7 for respondents’ own company.

CompTIA’s IT Industry Business Confidence Index is comprised of three metrics: opinions of the U.S. economy, opinions of the IT industry and opinions of one’s company. Q3 data is based on an online survey of 308 IT companies conducted in early July.
