62% of Irish enterprises working to digitalise infrastructure

Almost two-thirds (62%) of Irish IT decision-makers view digitalising their infrastructure as a priority for their organisation’s technology strategy. This is according to a survey today published by Equinix.

The results of the global study—which gathered responses from 103 Irish IT decision-makers shows that more than two-thirds (68%) said they plan to move more of their IT functions to the cloud, with 57% of these planning on doing so within the next 12 months, despite 50% of respondents still seeing perceived cybersecurity risks around cloud adoption as posing a threat to their business.

Commenting on the research, Managing Director for Equinix in Ireland, Maurice Mortell said, "Every day, we are seeing Irish organisations roll out innovative solutions in order to meet an entirely new set of customer requirements and in turn, help others to weather the storm too. The ability to adapt, innovate and scale quickly relies on IT infrastructure that sits at the digital edge and private connectivity that doesn’t rely on the now-overburdened public internet to function."

He added, "The enterprises that succeed in doing this are not only protecting themselves in the short-term, but they may emerge as stronger, more competitive digital businesses of the future, too."
