We all know Information Technology is big business, but did you know it was $4 trillion dollars big? That’s a 4 followed by 12 zeros. The latest projections from research company Gartner show worldwide IT spending at $3.76 trillion this year, projected to increase to $3.9 trillion in 2020.
As we can see in the chart below, the biggest growth area over the next 18 months should be enterprise software as IT institutions continue their shift to cloud services.
We have written several stories recently on this Blog about the rapid adoption of cloud tech, big data, and the ever-evolving Internet of Things. This has infiltrated most business industries who must now strategize on how to approach the present and future of their physical infrastructure.
“Spending is moving from saturated segments such as mobile phones, PCs, and on-premises data centre infrastructure to cloud services and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.” – John-David Lovelock, Gartner’s VP of Research.
Data management company Druva recently surveyed 170 organizations and 90% of respondents said they were running, or planning to run, virtual machines in the cloud.
Companies are flocking to the cloud for many reasons. Here’s the cliff notes for why:
- Ability to easily scale CPU, RAM, and disk space as your needs grow.
- High availability provides data durability, redundancy, and near perfect uptime.
- Reduces infrastructure overhead.
- Easier for an enterprise to expand globally.
- Better security than on-premises servers.
- Ease of management.
