Infrastructure sometimes has been viewed as the neglected part of the IT organization, as praise and rewards are heaped on the builders of new technology concepts such as slick mobile apps, e-commerce sites, and artificial intelligence. Nobody has ever said that managing the network, storage, systems software, and servers that make up infrastructure is the sexiest job in the world.

Yet new concepts and innovations are useless without a modern, efficient, and powerful enterprise infrastructure. That is clear from the responses in our 2019 State of Infrastructure Survey. They show that infrastructure is a key element in the success of tomorrow’s digital enterprise.

Here are some of our key findings:

  • Nearly half will spend at least 5% more on infrastructure in 2019 compared with 2018.
  • 35% say the growth of storage and data is driving the most change in their infrastructure.
  • The next 12 months will see an increase in the percentage of IT infrastructure budgets going to new innovations and technologies compared with ongoing maintenance.
  • Network security is a top priority for 61% of surveyed businesses.
