Indian CTOs push towards ‘New IT’in Lenovo CTOs study

Bangalore, 1st March 2023: – Lenovo, the global technology leader, undertook a global research study wherein 500 chief technology officers (CTOs) from various industries and countries shared their opinions on the future of technology, with 59 CTOs adding their perspectives from India.

The study uncovers interesting findings about CTOs’ viewpoints on how traditional IT will continue to evolve into a “New IT” architecture, where client devices, edge computing, cloud computing, network and artificial intelligence will all work together to address CTOs’ commons pain points and provide them with solutions as they drive further digitalization across all industries.

Ajay Sehgal, Executive Director for Commercial Business, Lenovo India, “The fact that CTOs from across the world are thrilled about the New IT architecture approach gives us hope and a perspective into the future of technology. These findings are extremely useful as the ICT sector develops new technological skills and innovation in the present for years to come. We will apply what we’ve learned from this study to help our clients better use data and produce insights that will change their businesses. This research has provided us with valuable insights into the goals and expectations of CTOs in the India market as well as globally.”

The top findings from Lenovo’s survey of more than 500 CTOs including the 59 Indian CTO’s Viewpoints are:

The shift to hybrid work environment is elevating the importance of elements of IT architecture:

● The majority of Indian CTOs had a favorable opinion of the technology architecture within their firm, with 57% describing it as “could be better,” 30% stating that it is “simple to use,” and only 13% categorizing it as “lacking.”
● Smart Devices, Smart IoT, and Scenario-Based Solutions, among other factors, are gaining relevance.
● Looking ahead, CTOs noted the importance of the cloud, software and computing as key components for the future of a hybrid work environment, with 90% optimistic about the future of the hybrid cloud.

Major challenges exist for CTOs relating to cybersecurity and accessibility in emerging tech:

● Respondents from India 90% all cited cybersecurity as a top challenge they need to address within their organizations.
● Compatibility issues in enterprise infrastructure and user experience are primary pain points when CTOs make purchasing, upgrading, migrating, and retiring decisions of IT infrastructure for their organizations.
● Specific challenges mentioned by the Indian CTOs are migration, skilling, and security.
○ The biggest issue is managing legacy systems as they get older and become obsolete, which adds to the pressure of having to find answers to significant problems quickly.
○ Increasing complexity in enterprise technology environments. The shortage of IT specialists caused by the exponential growth in demand is another issue.
○ Increasing cybersecurity and data privacy concerns with remote work.

CTOs say there is potential to utilize technology even more extensively at work:

● Other topics mentioned by CTOs as being crucial to the future of technology architecture include “R&D / Innovation” (9%), “Data Management” (7%) and security (6%) in addition to these five “New IT” components (Client, Edge, Cloud, Network, Intelligence).
● According to Indian CTOs, the New IT concept is the future of ICT (Information Communications Technology) architecture:
● New IT will help us in aspects of modern society. It is an innovative concept that helps companies adapt faster to changes. It ensures smarter and faster delivery of services
● The new architecture is definable, adaptable, and fluctuates with demand
● Indian CTOs also feel that there are other significant components that are important to shape the future of ICT (apart from the components of New IT). These components include Data Security, Upskilling of employees, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Customer satisfaction, AR, VR, and Metaverse.
● To ensure that the proper talent is applied to the right task, Indian CTOs also feel the need to upskill their workforce

Lenovo’s concept of “New IT” resonates among CTOs across the globe as and encompassing:

● Significant numbers of CTOs believe there is potential for their firms to make even greater use of IT infrastructure components including 5G MEC, the public edge cloud, IoT Edge, and private edge cloud across each of the five parts (Client – Edge – Cloud – Network – Intelligence).

ManageEngine’s top five predictions in enterprise IT space for 2023

ManageEngine

Cairo, Egypt. 1st March 2023: Since the start of the pandemic, there have been immense changes in how employees interact with IT tools and teams. Across the board, enterprises are seeing more collaboration between non-IT employees and IT personnel, and this collaboration can be, at least in part, attributed to IT decentralization and democratization. In the increasingly digital-first, hybrid work environment, we have five predictions that are likely to come to fruition.

1. Enterprise-IT will evolve into enterprise-wide IT

We will continue to see the decentralization of IT personnel. Not only will most enterprises have a centralized IT group to handle requirements like systems deployment, cybersecurity, compliance, and threat detection, but these enterprises will also have IT personnel throughout the organizational chart, addressing specialized business-driven needs as they arise. As technological expertise continues to permeate throughout enterprises, non-IT employees and IT-adjacent service delivery teams will use low/no-code platforms to build and deploy simple applications. According to a recent ManageEngine study – IT at Work: 2022 & Beyond, 42% of global IT decision-makers believe that each department will have its own IT team in the next five years.

2. The tool vs. platform debate will be laid to rest

Enterprises of varying sizes and maturity have made different choices, especially in regard to the management of their technology infrastructure. Some opted to go with a specialized tool for every problem; others invested in a platform that could expand to solve problems as they arose. The platform option is far more efficient. Having a tool for every problem doesn’t help enterprises keep pace with changing demands. More and more enterprises will opt for the holistic, scalable platform approach to managing their technology infrastructure.

3. We will see unified service delivery designed for remote-first employees

Organizations will consolidate enterprise services on a unified service management platform, facilitating remote-first employees with a productive workspace—wherever these employees choose to work. In addition to IT knowledge resources commonly accessed from a single enterprise self-service portal, employees will increasingly be able to access and request services; for example, they’ll be able to onboard remote employees, confirm corporate bookings, and submit travel expenses.

4. AI models will continue to evolve

In 2023, we will see AI models with better precision, being built with a limited amount of training data. Techniques like few-shot learning and transfer learning will see increased adoption, and the gap between natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision (CV) will continue to blur. As an example, we’re already seeing applications that allow us to search through a recording for a particular topic; then, by conversing with a chatbot, we’re brought to the relevant timestamps.

AI regulation is also on the horizon. Like we saw with data privacy legislation (GDPR), this regulation will come from the European Union. Set to become law in 2023, the E.U.’s AI Act could start being enforced as early as 2024.

5. Finding and reskilling technology talent will continue to be a challenge

The rapid evolution of technology and the changing business landscape has put pressure on businesses to find and retain talent; the question of whether enterprises should find fresh talent or reskill existing employees is one that enterprises will have to make.

In the wake of the Great Resignation, some companies assumed it would be easy to find new talent, but that really hasn’t been the case, especially in regard to software-engineering workers. Factors like diversity and inclusion will continue to influence hiring decisions, and at ManageEngine, we personally believe that continuing to train, educate, and foster the careers of existing employees is the best course of action. That said, enterprises will have to choose for themselves how best to proceed.

5 platform causing disruption in the furnishing industry leveraging AR & VR

Furnishing industry
