Data Highlights

ETR conducts three quarterly surveys – the Technology Spending Intentions Survey (TSIS), the Emerging Technology Survey (ETS), and the Macro Views Survey.

  • The TSIS measures vendor pervasion, which is how widespread a technology vendor is utilized.
  • The ETS measures organizations’ awareness of, willingness to try, and allocation towards emerging technologies.
  • Our newest survey, Macro Views, gives forward insight on budget impacts, priorities of spend, cost cutting strategies, and organizational changes, such as hiring trends, wage growth, remote work, and inflationary pressures.

Survey respondents for all are part of a vetted community of professionals who have decision-making power over their organization’s technology spend.

Below is a look at some of the data from our latest surveys. To see more of the data, including the respondent composition breakdown, download one of the highlights reports below.

The results of this survey showed that respondents ranked cybersecurity as a top priority, while cloud migration and analytics/ data warehousing rank second and third. Networking took a big jump since our September 2021 TSIS. Robotic process automation remains the lowest priority.

Looking forward, we are anticipating a considerable drop in the amount of workers that will be working fully remote. While currently 42% of the workforce are fully remote, the amount is expected to drop to 25% over time.

ETR captures data on the trends shaping the enterprise technology landscape. Within the data we track is a number of industry-specific and niche vendors in the IoT market in the ETS, including Worldsensing, Greenbird, Automile, RapidSOS, and SigFox. Among the vendors that have been tracked in the ETS for at least a year, we see Net Sentiment dropping year-over-year for all of them, with steep declines for Automile and Greenbird.
