New research by Rackspace Technology (NASDAQ: RXT), a leading end-to-end, hybrid multicloud technology solutions company, in association with Dell and VMware finds that despite ongoing economic uncertainty, businesses are committed to prioritizing their IT investments in 2024, particularly in transformative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud transformation.
According to the 2024 IT Outlook Report 2024 IT Outlook Report, which surveyed 1,420 global IT professionals, 63% of organizations plan to re-calibrate their investments in 2024. Moreover, artificial intelligence dominates as the top priority, with 65% of respondents identifying pervasive artificial intelligence as the technology that will have the most significant positive impact on their organization over the next 12 months. The survey also underscores the continued adoption of the cloud. When asked about the makeup of their organization’s IT infrastructure and how it will evolve over the next 12 months, edge computing, private cloud, and public cloud increased as a percentage of workloads, while data centers, colocation facilities, and mainframes declined.
“These results highlight a decisive shift in artificial intelligence from the technical curiosity and pilot programs in 2023 to accelerating business outcomes through the industrialization of Responsible AI solutions in 2024,” said Srini Koushik, President of Technology and Sustainability at Rackspace Technology. “In the cloud arena, the increased focus on the edge and private cloud indicate that organizations are simultaneously migrating more of their critical workloads while adopting a more sophisticated workload-aware approach to their overall cloud infrastructure.”
