20% of tech spending to be integrated as a service by 2018

The organisations' requirements to drive innovation and growth along with limited budget drive the spent.

By CBR Staff Writer

Gartner has predicted that about 20% of the amount spent on new technologies would be for full integration of technology as-a-service platform applications by 2018.

The analysis firm revealed that the organisations’ requirements to drive innovation and growth along with limited budget and the mainstreaming of consuming technology as-a-service are creating the perfect condition for integrated platform systems.

Gartner research director Susan Tan said that new technologies such as cloud, mobile, analytics, social, sensors and in-memory computing offer the promise of innovation and creation of competitive advantages.

"However, enterprises face challenges to their adoption," Tan said.

"Organisations still struggle with tight budgets and inflexible legacy systems, and many organizations lack resources, skill sets, appetite and time to adopt these new technologies in a conventional manner.

"Traditional implementations that take months and years to build cannot be agile enough to keep up with changing technologies or respond quickly to fleeting market opportunities.

"Besides, there are so many new technologies coming down the pike — many of which are promising but still."
