IT priorities 2015: How will IT decision makers spend this year's budget?


VM backup increasingly dealt with while DR still top priority

UK IT departments appear to have dealt with virtual server backup in increasing numbers while the number of disaster recovery deployments continues unabated. That’s according to the IT Priorities Survey for 2015, which questioned 111 UK IT professionals about planned IT spending priorities for 2015. This year virtual server backup is a key priority for 28% of respondents, a decrease from 36% in the 2014 survey, which was also down from 41.5% in 2013. Meanwhile, disaster recovery is a key project for 45% of those questioned, up a little on 2014, when 40% declared it their top priority, but in keeping with 2013’s figure of 44%.
