According to a Brocade-commissioned survey of UK-based IT Decision Makers (ITDMs), the top IT department priority for 2015 is increasing efficiency, as organisations demand to get more value out of their spending.
The survey reveals 53% of IT leaders see increasing efficiency as their top priority. Why? Mainly budget restrictions, as only 31% of organisations expect an increase in their IT capital spending for the coming year, while 69% predict budgets will either stay flat or decrease.
However a demand for change remains-- just 31% of surveyed ITDMs are "very confident" their current network infrastructure can handle the demands likely to be placed on it on the next 12 months. 33% are prioritising the improvement of existing infrastructure, while 32% are focusing to simply keep existing infrastructure up and running for another year.
