ORLANDO, Fla. — Three of Gartner’s top 10 technology trends envision significant changes — and problems — with data centers.
The number of systems managed on premise is on decline, as more work is moved to cloud providers, SaaS vendors and others. But that trend doesn’t mean that an IT manager’s job is getting easier.
“IT shops are realizing that as we move more work off-premise, it makes the job more complex,” said David Cappuccio, the Gartner analyst who develops the research firm’s annual list. He presented it Monday at the this year’s Symposium/ITxpo here in Orlando.
