This IDC Survey Spotlight provides insight into how IT and LOB decision maker perspectives on the prioritization of digital infrastructure technology investments have shifted over the past several months as many organizations grapple with long-term business changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic and social disruptions.
This document contains data from IDC's Future Enterprise Resiliency and Spending (FERS) Wave 1 and Wave 4 Surveys, conducted in February 2021 and May 2021, respectively. The purpose of the FERS Survey series (12 monthly surveys) is to explore a range of topics related to IT spending priorities, digital resiliency, and technology/organizational priorities in the next normal. The February survey solicited replies from a mix of 738 IT and LOB 738 decision makers across the United States, Europe, and Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), as well as across a range of industries. The May survey shows results from 832 decision makers. Results are weighted for GDP.
"Between February and May 2021, IDC's research shows an increasing number of IT and LOB decision makers ranking investments in digital infrastructure resiliency as priority or top priority technology investments for the next two years. As organizations begin planning for sustained support for hybrid work models, deeper digital engagement with customers and suppliers, and continued economic and social disruptions around the world, digital infrastructure resiliency is rising in its strategic important to many enterprises." — Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, Future of Digital Infrastructure Agenda at IDC
