ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 03/08/12 -- For the fourth consecutive year, Metricus, ITpreneurs' solution for taking control of IT performance, is releasing the findings of its "Trends in IT Performance Management" survey. CEOs, CIOs, project managers and consultants, among others from across the world, weighed in on key success factors and shortcomings in the IT industry.
One of the key findings was that cost reduction and regulatory compliance are no longer main drivers for IT performance reporting, as they have been in years past. Respondents also noted the difficulty associated with collecting data as a major shortcoming for data collection tools. This is in line with the finding that manual reporting is still the most popular data collection method.
The survey also covered risks, enablers and barriers associated with cloud computing. Security of data was cited as the biggest risk associated with cloud applications; as such, it was also cited as the best key performance indicator to measure cloud computing success.
"Through this survey, we concentrate on how the industry has changed, but also what changes we can expect in the future," said Sukhbir Jasuja, CEO, ITpreneurs. "In this ever-evolving industry, it is imperative to be as proactive as possible."
