THE RESULTS – Independent UK IT Survey 2020

March 25, 2020

Q Associates ran the Independent UK IT Survey 2020 to find out more about the core digital trends and the fresh technologies set to shape a new decade.  To do this we reached out to over 1000 senior UK IT professionals during January 2020 to see what they had to say.

In light of the current situation, we know that organisations and IT leaders are facing significant short-term challenges that are changing daily and to which they need to respond rapidly.  However, we believe that the underlying IT challenges identified in the survey are still relevant and we want to share those results with you.

We’ve discovered amid the accelerating pace of technology and business change, there will be no shortage of strategic challenges confronting IT leaders. Budgetary pressure, security, technical skills and resourcing – these are the words organisations keep coming back to when explaining their top IT challenges.

However, by recognizing and adapting to the challenges being faced there is also the opportunity to deliver more value than ever. Organisations are looking to new technologies like AI, data analytics and automation to gain a competitive edge.

Concerns for cyber security skyrocketed in 2019, along with having the right skills and resources to drive digital transformation and cloud migration, will the 2020 results showcase a reshuffling of primary focus areas?

The results report will help:

  • Benchmark your organisation
  • Gain valuable information around challenges your peers are facing
  • Identify primary focus areas for your 2020 IT strategy
