Most important IT Trends

The most important current IT trends according to the respondents (n=332)

Ever since big data technologies have become more accessible, and not just for the largest enterprises, the technology has become one of the cornerstones of the digital transformation.

As more and more corporate assets become digitalized, companies from all industries increasingly rely on big data analytics for storing and analyzing huge amounts of data, mining it for business intelligence, optimizing their business processes, improving relationships with customers and so on. With this in mind, it is hardly surprising that big data has been recognized as the single most important IT trend.

However, with great power comes great responsibility. Digital transformation not only enables a whole range of new business benefits, but it also exposes the company’s digital assets to new security risks.

Combined with increasingly tight compliance regulations imposed on many industries, this makes all aspects of information security extremely important, which is why IT security comes in as the second most important IT trend.
