Adaptiva, an award-winning provider of IT efficiency and systems management solutions, recently announced their 2014 predictions for the enterprise IT and systems management industries. Over the last year, IT budgets saw modest growth following a very lean 2012, with managers becoming more resourceful and extensively leveraging emerging technologies to reduce expenses and increase efficiencies. Businesses are placing more demands on enterprise IT than ever before, and technologies need to evolve to satisfy these needs.
"New technologies are providing dramatic efficiency gains in many areas," said Deepak Kumar, chief technology officer and founder of Adaptiva. "However, some innovations have raised unrealistic expectations. IT is now finding the limits of those technologies, causing managers to scale back overarching plans. They will leverage new trends strategically, complementing traditional tools and methodologies instead of uprooting them."
