A recent article released by CIO Dive revealed that CIOs are having a hard time keeping up with the complexity of technology. The report was taken from a digital performance management company called Dynatrace, where 800 CIOs were surveyed globally.
The fact that technology is growing so rapidly has been a cause of concern among professionals, particularly CIOs, who claim that the complexity of technology makes the management of digital performance more difficult. As we know, managing digital performance is very important when it comes to enterprises and business operations.
“The rapid adoption of new technologies has driven this trend to where it is now and it will likely accelerate in the next 12 months, when 53% of CIOs plan to deploy even more technologies. As a result of this complexity, IT teams now spend an average of 29% of their time dealing with digital performance problems.” CIO Dive reports.
Technology Is Becoming More Complex
It is really no secret that technology is growing, at a rapid pace. This pace has been growing a significant amount over the years, and with the growth of technology comes more complex tools that takes a certain kind of mindset to conquer and adapt to. As a business professional, especially a professional in the security scope, it is crucial to understand how this new technology works. If not, you will fall short.
In the survey released by CIO Dive, professionals reveal a bunch of reasons why they believe technology is becoming too complex to keep up with.
“Coming challenges like multi-cloud architecture and hyper-complex IT ecosystems challenge an organization’s ability to progress beyond physical databases and third-party cloud service providers. The philosophy of “More technology is better” has reached a tipping point.” CIO Dive reports.
The report reveals that 76% of CIO think that the growing information technology is becoming too complex is bringing challenges to managing digital performance. In other words, technology is interfering with carrying out digital tasks effectively, as well as managing performance within technology.
According to the report, CIOs are planning on adopting key technologies like cloud computing, microservices, and containers. The study also focused on the fact that IT complexity is growing so much, that 53% of CIOs are looking to dive into more technology within the next year. This means that CIOs are focused heavily on the technology scope, which creates a unique sort of pressure for professionals.
CIOs revealed that just one mobile or web transaction crosses about 35 different technology systems. This number differs greatly than 22 which was only 5 years ago.
“As a result of this mounting complexity, IT teams now spend an average of 29% of their time dealing with digital performance problems; costing their employers $2.5 million annually.” Business Wire reports.
CIOs are faced with a challenge in this digitally driven world, to either adapt to the complexity or to fall behind.
