Smaller SMEs not adopting latest IT
A research report commissioned by Dell and Intel reveals general trends and attitudes towards server virtualisation adoption in small businesses between different European countries with 41 percent of all the companies surveyed currently using the technology.
The findings reveal key differences in adoption and attitudes among European countries, and between companies with fewer than 25 employees and businesses with 25-100 employees. Overall businesses perceived the benefits of server virtualization as more significant than the obstacles.
Key findings from the survey report include:
- Server virtualisation adoption is not uniform between different sized companies and different countries.
- Server virtualisation adoption is highest (54 percent) among organizations with 25-100 employees, while only 15 percent of companies with fewer than 25 employees currently deploy it.
- The UK and Benelux region lead the way with server virtualisation adoption, with 41 and 43 percent of companies surveyed using the technology, while only 24 percent of Swiss companies use server virtualisation, well below the European average.
“While there is a noticeable difference between the adoption rates as companies increase in size, the results indicate that businesses of both size groups perceived the benefits of server virtualisation as more significant than the obstacles,” said Aongus Hegarty, president EMEA, Dell. “As businesses become increasingly reliant on technology, and become more educated in the innovations and benefits of server virtualisation, we are sure to witness an increase in its deployment, enabling businesses to enhance their infrastructures and maximise efficiency.”
