Significant Enterprise Shift to Off-Premises IT and Data Initiatives Ahead

IT executives are more fired up than ever about using public cloud and data initiatives to differentiate their businesses, according to a recent 451 Research survey. 

In its first-ever Voice of the Enterprise (VotE) Digital Pulse survey, released this week, 60 percent of more than 1,000 IT leaders surveyed report that they plan to run the majority of their IT off-premises by year-end 2019; that includes public cloud and SaaS.

This quarterly survey signals where partners should focus their efforts. For starters, there’s the increasing importance of data-centric technologies.
