SolarWinds Study Reveals Hybrid IT is the Reality for Majority of Businesses; Security Concerns, New Skillsets Top of Mind for IT Professionals
According to the SolarWinds IT Trends Report 2016, Only 9 Percent of IT Professionals Say Their Organizations Have Not Migrated Any Infrastructure to the Cloud, While 62 Percent Report Security Remains the Greatest Challenge and Three-Quarters Indicate Resources and New Skills Are Still Needed
AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwired – March 29, 2016) – SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today released the findings of its IT Trends Report 2016: The Hybrid IT Evolution. The study features insights from IT practitioners, managers and directors proving that the vast majority of businesses have shifted away from on-premises-only infrastructure to hybrid IT environments, creating new concerns and pressures for IT professionals.
“The findings of this year’s study paint a clear picture: cloud adoption is nearly ubiquitous, but it’s not now and will not in the foreseeable future be suitable for all workloads, and even if it were, very few if any companies would convert all of their existing applications to run in the cloud,” said Joel Dolisy, CIO, SolarWinds. “The resulting dynamic — one set of critical on-premises services connected with another set of services in the cloud — is hybrid IT. And at the center of this evolution is the IT professional who needs to ensure always-on performance of applications, devices, networks and systems — regardless of location. They need to be empowered with the support to gain the skills and tools required to properly monitor and manage hybrid IT environments, which in turn will allow businesses to truly unlock the potential of the cloud.”
