The 130-page report is based on a survey conducted by Wipro between December 2019 and January 2020. It combines the findings and insights gleaned from the survey with our expertise accumulated over three decades from delivering IT infrastructure services and innovations to global business leaders. Our team of experts has interpreted, explained and contextualized the findings to present a neutral and unbiased representation of strategies. This is overlaid by the invaluable voice of our customers and partners who are changing the rules of the game through their IT infrastructure strategies.
Respondents to the online survey included IT Managers (46%), IT Directors (33%), Senior VPs, Vice Presidents, Assistant Vice Presidents (6%) and CEOs, CIOs, CTOs and COOs (3%), and others (12%). The respondents’ businesses/organizations operated in the UK (12%), North America (25%), the Asia Pacific Region (22%), in Continental Europe (17%), in the Middle East (15%), and in Latin America (9%). The respondents industries included Banking (20%), IT Services (18%), Insurance (11%), Industrial and Process Manufacturing (9%), Utilities (6%), Oil & Gas (6%), Communications (5%), Securities and Capital markets (4%), Automotive (4%), CPG (4%) and others (13%).
As the study progressed, we found that COVID-19 was adding pressure to stretch the IT infrastructure to breaking point. Many organizations that had lagged in their digital transformation programs were caught in the chaos, unable to continue to meet customer expectations—contact centers were overloaded, support tickets were growing, customers were disappointed, and employees were struggling with working from home to ensure their organizations could continue to provide services. The State of IT Infrastructure 2020 report takes a look at the impact of COVID-19 on IT infrastructure and the changes that are required to make organizations more resilient to such crises.
The report concludes by looking at the barriers that could delay infrastructure transformation and provides a quick and easy-to-consume perspective specifically for Banking, Manufacturing, Consumer Services, and Energy and Utilities.
Wipro’s State of IT Infrastructure 2020 is the ultimate handbook for IT infrastructure experts and will serve as a friendly guide to confident decision-making right through the next 12 months.
