ESG Research Report: The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Remote Work, 2020 IT Spending, and Future Tech Strategies

Abstract:

The COVID-19 crisis is creating a new normal for IT executives and knowledge workers alike. Citywide closures, stay-at-home mandates, and social distancing measures are forcing many people to work from home to help flatten the curve of a global pandemic. For IT executives, meeting the needs of these remote workers calls for new technologies, stringent protection measures, and operational agility. Knowledge workers, on the other hand, must take advantage of collaboration platforms while minimizing distractions and overcoming technical shortcomings.

Despite these challenges and persistent health and safety concerns, COVID-19 presents a prime opportunity to redesign the workplace, rethink how work gets done, and get a head start on the future.

ESG conducted an in-depth survey of 500 North American senior IT decision makers and 1,008 corporate knowledge workers now working at home. Survey participants represented midmarket (100 to 999 employees) and enterprise-class (1,000 employees or more) organizations in North America (United States and Canada).

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.

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.
