Current IT trends based on Central and Eastern Europe market

Quick adaptation to changing market realities is often a prerequisite for a company so that it can flourish. Businesses are looking for ways to continuously improve the company’s competitiveness. To achieve that goal, follow the path of increasing innovation of products, solutions and services, and also continuous process improvement and cost optimization.

With the help of skillfully used IT solutions, a company can achieve the assumed target. One of the major current trends is still cloud computing.

Regardless of the type of cloud type (public, private, or hybrid) we are dealing with very similar benefits, resulting from the application of this cloud type to provide services. Cloud allows reducing the required investment in time and detailed control over incurred operating costs, related to services that are provided by IT support for your business.

Cost control can be carried out with accuracy to the level of a single component of the service – for example, when used in the software license, the number of transactions, the duration and the level of utilization of the infrastructure.

We also expect to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and to reduce the expected time of return on investment (ROI). In the case of telecommunications companies, system integrators, and operators of data centers, they can all expect the new revenue streams to become established.

Another significant trend is advanced business analytics. For firms to compete, they must have both the data, and on the basis the data, make good decisions.

Currently available tools can help with the conducting of the data analysis, and we can use the tools to build a model of the company’s ecosystem so we can use it to test the impact of future decisions on the condition of the company. Analytic systems allow us an insight into the current state of the company and the assumed level of implementation plans. This way, managers can have the time to make a decision, introducing the necessary adjustments.

We continue to maintain the trend of virtualization infrastructure. Full virtualization of disk subsystems and the network layer follows in the wake of server virtualization. The final recipients of technology see that the same virtualization server environment is not enough. If you want a high-performance, scalable, and highly automated IT solution, it is imperative to have all the layers of infrastructure virtualized. This applies to both servers, network, disk and tape systems.

Only full virtualization enables truly flexible allocation of resources, and ease of reconfiguration, and simplifies the construction of a high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) environment for operating under the supervision of the application.

In the area of user support, a clearly emerging trend is to virtualize desktops by building cloud-based and user environments. This way significantly reduces the cost of technical support of users, minimizes downtime in the event of a failure, which directly affects the increase in productivity. Not without significance is to increase control over the security of applications and data processed by the company’s IT systems.

All these solutions are aimed at helping to improve the competitiveness of enterprises, and enhance collaboration and productivity resulting in profitability.
