Prioritizing AI, Sustainability and Security: Nutanix's ECI Report Highlights Many IT Leaders' Priorities


“Whether it be because of AI, sustainability or security imperatives, IT organizations are facing ever-increasing pressure to modernize their IT infrastructure quickly,” said Lee Caswell, Senior Vice President of Product and Solutions Marketing at Nutanix.

But to what else, specifically, is Caswell referring?

Let’s dive into the context.

Across industries, businesses are continuing to struggle with seamlessly transferring applications and data between different computing environments. (on-prem, the cloud, etc.) With the always-hot buzzword that is AI – and of course, the implications of mass AI implementations – still rapidly gaining traction, businesses are increasing investments in AI-centered strategies as a top priority (in addition to other strong focuses on modernizing IT infrastructure).

What is this claim backed by, then?

Well, recently released findings from – you guessed it – Nutanix.

Nutanix is no stranger to solving tough challenges; uniting public cloud simplicity and agility with private cloud performance and security, running a platform that smoothly integrates infrastructure and management for all-around improved operations, you get the idea. The Nutanix team is on top of it. That’s also why this multicloud computing provider ran its sixth annual Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) survey and research report. The ECI mainly measures global enterprise progress with cloud adoption, but AI is now on that corkboard, too.

That’s how we wrap back to Caswell’s initial quote; this year’s ECI report revealed not just the forecasted doubling of hybrid multicloud models as IT decision-makers face new modernization pressures, but also because of drivers like AI, sustainability and security.

“80% of ECI respondents are planning to invest in IT modernization, with 85% planning to increase their investments specifically to support AI,” Caswell went on. “What this year’s ECI reveals is that organizations need to support the technologies of tomorrow by future-proofing their IT infrastructure today. Hybrid multicloud continues to emerge as the infrastructure standard of choice because of the flexibility it provides to support traditional VM and modern containerized applications and movement between clouds and on-prem.”
