DevOps, IoT, and AI are the Transformative Technologies Delivering the Most Impact TodayClearly, organizations are actively engaged in technology-enabled business transformation, with 65% of respondents to the study indicating they have already implemented, or are actively discussing or trialing, DevOps. 54% of respondents say they have implemented or are discussing AI and IoT. 50% indicate that DevOps has a large impact on the business, with 42% saying AI/Machine Learning, and 40% IoT. When you layer on when these transformative technologies will impact the business, the picture becomes clearer: 60% of respondents indicate that DevOps has already become mainstream.
Cloud Adoption is AcceleratingRespondents indicate that – today – 62% of workloads are on-premises, with 34% using some form of cloud (public, private, or SaaS application). In 3 years? On-premise use is projected to drop to 44%, while cloud use jumps to 53%. Almost a total flip! With such an increase in cloud-hosted workloads expected over the next three years, it’s vital for organizations to address security issues in their hybrid environments.
Security is the Biggest Challenge – and for Good Reason… Breaches Cost!Unsurprisingly, security issues remain the number one deterrent to organizational adoption of NGTs, with 78% of respondents saying IT security is a somewhat or extremely large challenge. And, as evidenced from our survey respondents, security issues, as a result of NGTs, are happening at an alarming rate.

- 20% experienced a breach that resulted in an outage
- 25% saw breaches over that time period that triggered a compliance event
