Most organizations (75% of those surveyed) find the need to upgrade outdated infrastructure and invest in new technologies, according to the State of IT Infrastructure 2020 report from global information technology, consulting and business process services company, Wipro Limited.


In addition, 81% of enterprises are reskilling their existing workforce to increase digital penetration, signifying major changes on the horizon for IT infrastructure.

With uncertainty in demand, there is a rapid shift in channel preferences, the large-scale adoption of work from home brings new challenges for businesses and their suppliers, according to the report.

Additional highlights from the report on IT infrastructure include:

■ In an enterprise, on an average 43% of the IT infrastructure spend budget is used for transforming the business. This suggests that there is considerable scope for innovation.

■ 24% organizations do not have a single cloud partner. The single-largest expense account will be for data center cloud, heralding a new phase in cloud adoption as organizations move from a "cloud-first" to a "cloud smart" approach.

■ 54% organizations will be adopting containers, a trend that will make open source a more compelling choice across IT infrastructure.

■ Rapid evolution of software-defined resources and emergence of AIOps to advance automation programs

Methodology: The annual study is based on three months of primary and secondary research including surveys of C-level executives, vice presidents, business unit leads. These respondents belong to the Banking, IT Services Insurance, Industrial and Process Manufacturing, Utilities, Oil & Gas, Communications, Securities and Capital Market, Automotive, Consumer Packaged Goods, and other industries. The poll was conducted across UK, North America, Asia Pacific Region, Continental Europe, Middle East, and Latin America.
