BYOD is Taking Effect within Large Enterprises, According to Global Survey

A global survey of IT directors indicates that employees are increasingly taking control of IT, as 45 percent of respondents indicate that their personal hardware and software are more useful to them than the tools and applications provided by their company. Also, while the consumerization trend is having a positive impact on employee morale as indicated by 88 percent of survey participants believing that the use of personal devices increases employee job satisfaction, lingering concerns still exist with 72 percent of companies citing increased security incidents from the use of mobile devices.

Big Data is also pushing the boundaries of innovation and driving companies to the cloud. The complexity of information is forcing a change in data management strategies where data capture, storage, search, sharing, analysis and viewing must be redefined. This phenomenon goes hand in hand with the reduction in storage and computing costs, and, to cope with this deluge of digital information, businesses are turning to the cloud.

These key findings were among the most prominent in the fourth annual CIO Barometer, which polled more than 300 directors across private, semi-public and public organizations across Europe and North America on the socioeconomic evolutions, trends and outlooks of IT departments. The survey was carried out by market research firm TNS Sofres and funded by CSC (NYSE: CSC), and was supplemented by more than 40 in-depth testimonials from CIOs to generate deeper insights.

Additional highlights include:

  • 33 percent of businesses surveyed state that their primary motivation for adopting cloud computing is the ability to offer greater access to information, with the second most important motivating factor is cost reduction.
  • 57 percent of respondents cite that their top activity for making IT more environmentally friendly is to reduce overall energy consumption, with replacing PCs and IT components coming in as the second most cited activity for going green.
  • 43 percent of respondents agreed that IT projects were the number one costliest element of last year’s budget, a dramatic rise for this factor, which came in at number 11 the previous year.
  • 75 percent of companies are outsourcing more than a quarter of their IT services as compared to 30 percent from the 2011 CIO Barometer.
  • 40 percent of companies are increasing their IT budgets despite a slow economic recovery in Europe and the United States.
