ESG Brief: 2018 Cybersecurity Spending Trends

Abstract:

IT spending for cybersecurity products and services continues to accelerate in 2018 as business and IT executives grapple with the dangerous threat landscape. Given the scope of the monetary and brand damage associated with data breaches and other security incidents, it is not surprising that cybersecurity continues to be treated as a business issue—rather than merely an IT priority—and budgeted appropriately.

ESG Brief: 2018 Application Development Spending Priorities

Abstract:

As enterprise organizations evolve their digital transformation initiatives, the need for them to become more agile in application development is often a lynchpin in the viability of these efforts. ESG’s research has found that, when it comes to application development initiatives and strategies, formalizing DevOps practices and developing new mobile applications were among organizations’ top spending priorities for the next 12-18 months. These top initiatives are driven by an organization’s overall application development output, with strong correlations between the need to formally implement DevOps practices with the size and number of applications deployed.

Abstract:

Most organizations expect to spend more on business intelligence (BI), analytics, and big data technology solutions in 2018 as organizations continue down a path of becoming more data-driven, increasingly in real time.

ESG Brief: 2018 Enterprise Mobility Spending Trends

Abstract:

Nearly half of midmarket and enterprise organizations plan to increase their 2018 spending on the software, services, and devices required to make their workforce more mobile. While a key benefit of these efforts is untethering employees from desks and offices, they also serve to expand the security perimeter IT staffs must heed. As such, mobility initiatives increasingly include a heightened focus on security and management.

ESG Brief: 2017 Storage Trends: Challenges and Spending

Abstract:

ESG recently completed a detailed research study into the state of the enterprise storage industry, and the results reveal an industry attempting to find balance in a “hybrid-cloud-defined” IT industry. Not surprisingly, on-premises storage infrastructure deployments continue to face pressure from the rising adoption of public cloud services. However, could storage innovations—such as flash, software-defined storage, and object storage—as well as converged infrastructures that can deliver substantial benefits, entice more IT decision makers to keep workloads on-premises?
