IT Survey Results: Independent UK Survey of IT Priorities 2022

March 24, 2022

As we move through 2022 organisations will undoubtedly continue to harness flexibility, agility, and innovative thinking, as the focus shifts from attempting to survive in a changed reality to thriving in it.

Now more than ever, technology is associated with innovation and invention, and provides a pipeline of new products and services.  However, technology changes and evolves quickly, and the speed of digital innovation hasn’t been easy for everyone to keep up with.

Q Associates wanted to find out more about the specific IT trends set to have the biggest impact in 2022.  To do this we reached out to over 1000 IT professionals to see what they had to say.

THE RESULTS ARE IN. The report will help you not only benchmark your organisation and gain valuable IT insights but identify which major challenges your peers are facing in 2022, among many other things.


At first glance the IT priorities of 2022 seem familiar: capturing the value of the cloud, improving security, and keeping pace with innovative technology.  But the world health crisis has heightened these concerns and new ones have appeared, including the ever-increasing IT skills gap and IT supply chain shortages.

What are the primary focus areas for your 2022 IT strategy?

During the past 20 months technology played a pivotal role in delivering products and services digitally or facilitating remote working during lockdown.  Although an important step towards a digitally transformed future, many of these provisions have been hastily assembled without proper long-term goal or planning. And the reality is the majority still do not have a formalised strategy for the future.

As we look at the primary focus areas for 2022, there are no surprises that cyber security remains a key concern, as business leaders face the challenge of evolving cyberattacks and the need to continuously improve security and protect critical assets.

Which major challenges are you most concerned about?

In the next twelve months, we are going to see a continued push for digitisation and an intention for organisations to increase technology investments. This means having the right IT skills and knowledge in place to ensure a strong, future-proof foundation.

While this level of innovation and the continued demand for tech investment is great news, it also creates huge pressures, particularly when it comes to resourcing talent. Organisations are finding that they need specialist knowledge and certified skills for new technologies, and even the most adaptable in-house IT teams may not have enough exposure to the products, not to mention the time, to efficiently address issues.

What impact are you expecting on your IT budget for 2022? Whose input is most valuable to you when making strategic IT decisions for your organisation?
