In a survey conducted by Vanson Bourne in 2010, nearly 38 percent of IT decision makers had disliked the idea of owning in-house IT infrastructure. According to their new survey, more than half of all organizations regretted their decision to invest in IT equipments. The report shows growing interest in outsourced infrastructure and cloud computing as means for freeing up budgets, fostering collaboration and operational efficiencies, and building competitive advantage. Three in five IT and business decision makers contacted by the research firm agreed that owning and operating in-house IT infrastructure drives costs higher and wastes resources.
Over the next five years, nearly 40 percent of organizations around the globe are likely to outsource their IT infrastructure as part of their efforts to cut down cost and increase efficiency, predicts the survey.
