2015 European Software Survey: Beating Datacenter Challenges to Become 3rd Platform–Ready

2015 European Software Survey: Beating Datacenter Challenges to Become 3rd Platform–Ready

This IDC study focuses on European enterprises' datacenter challenges in 2015 and beyond. It presents the results of a recent IDC survey of over 1,450 Western European IT decision makers and influencers about their IT and business priorities, spending plans, and software procurement processes for 2015. The results highlight that security and compliance remain the top datacenter-specific challenges, followed by data migration challenges.

"The heightened focus on security is a result of the changes brought in by the onslaught of new technologies and devices in the datacenter. The traditional security tools and approaches are no longer adequate for keeping datacenters secure and compliant," said Carla Arend, program director, European storage and cloud research, IDC.
