At VMworld 2015, Brocade implemented a survey focusing on New IP networking, polling 60+ senior IT decision makers attending the show to learn about their strategic business priorities, IT challenges and technology usage.
In the survey, senior IT decision makers shared insight on technology usage within their data centers, as well as which factors they believe threaten to put a break on IT transformation to more agile cloud-based environments. Results indicate that IT professionals are aggressively adopting many of the technologies which underpin the New IP model of IT transformation – . software defined networking, private cloud, as well as a move to open source solutions.
Topline findings include:
Strategically, 71 % of IT decision makers see a need for IT transformation. However, they also identified common barriers to this transformation as being shortage of funds (25%), cultural conservatism within the IT team (23%) and a lack of strategic consensus at board level (23%). Interestingly, only 16 percent cited ‘uncertainty about which technologies to use’ as being a barrier to transformation.
