Firms that invest effectively in the development of information technology's human resource is believed to enjoy better performance than not. To confirm this issue, an analysis has been performed to examine the three-year IT spending of a sample of Fortune 500/Service 500 firms. The selected companies have all been identified as leaders in their industries for the use of information technology, which include 42 firms, 17 of whom are from service industries. From the results, there is a highly significant positive relation between spending for development of the IT staff and performance of the firm, measured by corporate revenue.
