Will 2018 See Any Changes to Your Infrastructure?

Will 2018 See Any Changes to Your Infrastructure?

Any business’ IT is reliant on that business’ computing infrastructure, which makes the infrastructure an important topic for every business to consider. As we progress into 2018, it is important to stay up-to-date and considerate of each new development and trend.

To help, we’ve compiled a few considerations that businesses will have to make in regard to their infrastructure in the coming year.

Increased Investments
First and foremost, surveys suggest that 45 percent of IT leaders anticipate spending an increased amount on their organization's computing infrastructure. This alone indicates that decision makers recognize the importance of their infrastructure to their business and are committing to keeping them updated and optimized for their needs. Many of these investments are likely to be directed towards improving security, with 59 percent of survey respondents placing this task among their top three priorities.

Cloud Technology
It should come as no surprise that cloud solutions are an integral part of any infrastructure strategy, as they provide a scalable solution to many of a business’ needs. Those surveyed identified a variety of reasons that their infrastructure planning included a cloud solution, including backup and data recovery (37 percent), application-specific storage (30 percent), archiving (31 percent), and general storage (29 percent).

Software-Defined Infrastructures
Thanks to this advancement, infrastructure oversight and operation no longer requires a human element in order to take place. Through automated processes and machine learning, software-defined infrastructures allow improvements to take place among many points.
