Syracuse NY – Budgets, security, communications, and the cloud were the four most prevalent topics on the minds of IT professionals surveyed at the 14th annual NY Tech Summit, this past June.
“The feedback from survey participants gives us a good indication of the challenges IT professionals are facing throughout our industry this year,” said Renee Duffy, conference producer and vice president of marketing for TERACAI and CXtec, presenting sponsors of NY Tech Summit. “This information allows NY Tech Summit to be a valuable, thought-provoking event year after year for attendees and exhibitors alike.”
Battling budget constraints and costs
IT professionals are increasingly tasked with meeting the challenge of finding solutions within the constraints of their budget.
Survey participants revealed their organizations are combating budget constraints and cost concerns by looking to save money on their maintenance program.
Security always a concern
A new security-related question this year focused on a respondent’s IT asset disposition (ITAD) program.
In 2017, cybersecurity was a big concern among those IT professionals surveyed. This year, respondents were asked how prepared they felt their organization was in dealing with a cybersecurity attack?
Communication is key
Communication is a critical component in driving business success, whether it’s dealing with an internal or external audience. Finding ways for implementing effective two-way communication continues to be a critical obstacle to overcome in order to be successful.
Managed services at your service
Managed services provide faster problem resolution and improved service levels for key business applications, enabling you to better meet business requirements.
Moving to the cloud
Moving data to the cloud was the top technology trend being adopted by respondents this year.
