Perspective series: The New IT Crowd
Rapid adoption and innovation in new technology is having a seismic impact on the business landscape, more so than at any other time in history.
The new IT crowd are no longer the back office geeks – they’re central to the success and growth of your organisation.
In our report, we examine how the roles of the CIO and IT manager have evolved. They now need to have considered opinions about every new innovation – and be the troubleshooters not just for IT, but also for wider business issues.
The rise of flexible working has also made IT security a major responsibility for these leaders. With 91% of IT directors concerned about implementing BYOD and 59% thinking security is a major issue with multiple operating systems, it’s no surprise that worldwide IT security costs are expected to be £18.5 million by 2017. We reveal the biggest security challenges and simple solutions to secure your organisation through this technology explosion.
