Organisations to focus more on IT automation in 2022

Driven by digital transformation and modernisation efforts, many organisations are focused on IT projects and allocating more budget to IT services.

Indeed, a recent report by SWZC found that more than 75% of companies are planning to implement employee training and spending on emerging anti-ransomware technology solutions in order to protect their devices from security threats.

Moreover, it was reported that 19% of the budgets will be dedicated to laptops and 14% to servers as workloads shift away from on-premises data centres. IT budgets are focusing more on hosted and cloud-based services.

It noted that 50% of all business workloads are expected to run in the cloud by 2023. Hence, the budget for cloud-based technologies is set to increase significantly in 2022, alongside virtualisation and operating systems, with a decline for on-premises servers.
