Industry analyst Gartner has been analysing the top ten strategic Technology Priorities for enterprises in 2016, having sought the opinions of nearly 3,000 CIOs. The priorities are:
1. Business Intelligence/Analytics
4. Digitisation/Digital Marketing
5. Infrastructure and Data Centre
8. Industry Specific Applications
10. Networking/Voice/Data Communications
BT Wholesale’s products and services are closely aligned with these objectives. The top four topics show a continuing emphasis on various aspects of digitisation. Gartner describes this as a core competency and says: “…enterprises must fully grasp and exploit the effects of platforms on every aspect of their businesses — or risk losing great talent and valuable customers.”
The remaining trends underline the importance of a powerful architecture and digital platform that will support digitisation, along with the need to maintain a vital focus on relationships and interconnections.
