A recent study found that nearly half of EMEA's leaders plan to make major investments in it infrastructure based on artificial intelligence and the cloud.
The study comes from Aruba a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company. The study is entitled "Preparing the World of Post-Pandemic Work."
For what can already be learned from the essentials of this study is that the IT managers of companies, put in place a set of systems that uses various methods and professional standard. In other words, the goal is to be able to alternate employees and employees between remote work, on-the-go work and work in a company. In this context they want to evolve their network infrastructure.

"With the emergence of a hybrid workspace, it is incumbent on IT managers to strike a delicate balance between flexibility, security and costs on the periphery of the network," said Morten Illum, Vice President of emea Zone at Aruba. He added: "Every aspect of the workspace must evolve: the campus must have the technology to ensure contactless experiences and compliance with social distance measures, while the home office must have connectivity, security and support equivalent to that of the company. To meet these new needs in a challenging economic environment, IT decision-makers are increasingly attracted to the benefits of a subscription model in terms of cost and risk reduction."
"The needs of customers and employees have changed so much in recent months that it's not surprising to see IT managers looking for more flexible solutions," says Illum. "Agile and flexible network management is more than ever a necessity for them and it is imperative to reduce the complexity of networks to ensure the security and fluidity expected by users."
"The pandemic has led many organizations to rethink their investments in IT infrastructure to develop agile, adaptable and responsive models. While there may have been an initial negative impact on ongoing projects, it is encouraging to see that there are medium-term plans to invest in advanced network technologies, made possible by more flexible consumer models that limit initial capital demands," says the head of Aruba.
According to Aruba: "In France, the average proportion of IT services consumed by subscription will increase by more than a third over the next two years, from 35% of the current total to 46% in 2022, and the share of organizations that consume a majority (over 50%) their "as-a-service" IT solutions will almost double during this period. ».
The study also did not fail to raise the direct pacts of the coronavirus pandemic on the development of computer systems and interactions that in some ways have impacted the capacity of information systems. We will remember in sums:
– In France, 24% of information systems managers found that covid-19 had a "significant" impact on their workforce, in terms of partial unemployment or even redundancy.
– 48% believe the effect has been fairly moderate
– And according to 22% the employment rate that has been lost is quite low
– 79% of the officials surveyed in France said they had postponed several investments in computer network projects because of the coronavirus pandemic.
– 33% of respondents to the French even said that they had cancelled their project.
– on the other hand, in Sweden, almost 59 percent of specialists said they had given up several network infrastructure projects before one in Italy this rate is only 11 percent. Globally, 37% of IT managers in the field of education and 35% in the hotel sector of the element confessed before was forced to cancel several investments in the field of the computer network.
It can be inferred from the that coronavirus impacts are evolutionary depends on the area concerned.
