Since the onset of the pandemic, IT teams have adapted quickly to address challenges stemming from an increase in remote work and customer demand for stronger security measures. What are the top infrastructure priorities now? How is workload being deployed? What are the current challenges and what’s driving decisions?
To better understand what’s happening on the ground with IT teams, Service Express conducted a survey of more than 700 IT professionals across the US. The result is the 2022 Data Center & Infrastructure Report. Key findings reveal the continued need for strengthening security, reducing costs, and on-premises data centers.
The report also identifies top industry priorities and challenges, as well as some of the cost savings measures companies plan to initiate in 2022. Respondents thoughts on workload deployment are also discussed, including what’s driving workloads off-premises and to the cloud, and the state on on-prem data centers. The report reveals insights on infrastructure decision drivers and the impact of COVID-19.
In the report, the CIO and CTO of Service Express respond to the results of the survey and provide several key takeaways.
