Claranet Research Report 2016 launched at Cloud Expo Europe

Charles Nasser, Claranet CEO, takes the keynote speech at Cloud Expo Europe to introduce some of the key findings from this year's Claranet Research Report.

He explains why some European countries are leading the pack when it comes to progressive IT strategies, how security is the number one IT challenge now and in the future, and what rising DevOps adoption has to do with hybrid cloud.

Inside the report

The European IT decision-maker is facing an increasingly complex landscape.

IT departments across Europe are tasked with performing both their traditional roles as administrators and reactive problem solvers, and are also expected to drive innovation, which, in turn should result in business success and market differentiation.

Skills shortages, data analysis, application management and development, shadow IT, mobile working and many other challenges lie in the way between reality and the ideal implementation of IT in business.
