IT leaders are facing significant challenges:
The forces of a smarter planet are fueling growth and innovation – cloud, analytics, social business, and mobile aren’t simply remaking computing, they are remaking business. This new era presents an opportunity for organizations to reshape the value they deliver, but cost, complexity and risk are standing in the way.
- 70% of IT budget is devoted to operations and maintenance 1
- Digital content will rocket to 8 zetabytes by 2015 2
- The average total organizational cost of a data breach was $5.5 million in 2012 3
