Questioning companies across both the public and private sectors, 81 per cent said that they see virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and application streaming as the most likely areas where investments will be made. 75 per cent of organisations believe that application streaming provides the best value for IT spend in the next year.
The implementation of a flexible working provision also scored highly, with almost a third of organisations stating that they will use technology to support such policies over the next twelve months.
Ewen Anderson, managing director at Centralis commented, "organisations are looking for increased value for their IT investment, and clearly see virtualisation as a way of supporting business agility. This allows the implementation of policies such as flexible working, providing a secure way for staff to work off-site and reducing costs in tough economic times by enabling initiatives such as shared services and branch office consolidation.
