Security has become the single most important requirement of a digital enterprise. When IDC surveys organizations about their priorities, security is invariably at or near the top of the list. Indeed, when asked, for example, to select the top AI infrastructure items that businesses feel are not optimal within the offerings of their server and storage vendors or providers, security scores highest, with 30% saying that they are unhappy with the security features.

IDC believes that for a digital enterprise to succeed in today’s challenging, multifaceted environment, the following are critical considerations:

  • Security as an imperative requirement
  • The reliability mandate
  • Scalability and sustainability
  • The right hybrid IT infrastructure (hybrid cloud and cloud-native applications)
  • The importance of AI and where to run it
