In the current market conditions the easy and obvious thing to do when turning to cost cutting is to wield the knife heavily on IT. New projects get culled, recruitment freezes and contractors get laid off as IT spend shrinks. This is a knee-jerk reaction and rarely in the long term interests of the oganisation. Surely the current market downturn should be seen as an opportunity to invest in IT, use the slack period to improve processes when they are not stressed, and get ready for the upswing when the economy turns.
