10 December 2021

Plans for hybrid working and future tech investment are calling into question the need for businesses to maintain or rely on their on-premise data centres, according to new research from Zen Internet. A survey of 200 business leaders across the UK, the company found that post-Covid, on average, only 11% of planned tech operations will be hosted on-premise. Off premise tools including SD-WAN (26%), artificial intelligence (25%) automation (24%) and application programming interface (24%) are the top tech investments set to be made in the next 12 months.
