Today, technology is not just supporting the business, it’s becoming the business. To stay competitive, you must simultaneously run your business and fuel innovation.
Insight’s annual European technology survey of IT decision makers uncovers the latest technology trends and shows the significant evolution of our business journey.
The survey showed organisations are implementing transformative workplace solutions that empower employees to be more efficient, collaborative and engaged. The modern workplace has now become a competitive advantage in the search for the best employees with 74% of IT professionals reporting their organisations link modern technology to attracting and retaining talent. In their attempts to build modern workplaces, organisations are focused on strategies and solutions to personalise the employee experience, offer greater support resources and empower employees to work in new, more collaborative ways. End user adoption is one of the main focuses to achieve this.
Another important fact is that organisations have begun investing heavily in cloud, however, IT professionals report that 30% of that spend is not utilised effectively. This waste could stem from the lack of visibility of used services at the cost centre, workload and application level reported by over one-third of IT decision makers. It is also likely an outcome of organisations struggling to determine best-fit workloads for public, private and hybrid clouds. Cloud spending and difficulties planning and allocating budgets for cloud consumption are also a contributing factor. Combined, these findings suggest that organisations need guidance when it comes to monitoring cloud consumption, controlling their cloud spend and optimising their cloud investments.
