ETR Presents: 2023 Top Enterprise Tech Trends Series Pt1

Over the next month, ETR will highlight its recent 2023 Top Trends series, where we interviewed several ITDMs in our community to determine the most (and least) pressing enterprise technology trends heading into 2023. This article recaps some of the high-level takeaways from one of those interviews featuring a CISO from a Global, Retail/Consumer Enterprise. 

2023 Top Enterprise Tech Trends

To mark the end of the year, ETR hosted a series of interviews with IT decision makers following a standardized set of questions to determine the most (and least) pressing trends in enterprise technology heading into 2023. The interview panel consisted of five ETR Community Members: the Senior DevOps and SRE Officer for a large financials enterprise; CISO for a large hospitality enterprise; Director of IT for a large tech enterprise; Sr. Director of IT Infrastructure for a global financial services enterprise; and CTO for a global travel enterprise. All seasoned experts in their fields, these panelists opined on macroeconomic conditions; IT budget priorities; the coming year’s innovation landscape; novel challenges in IT security; the most overhyped technology trends of 2022; and anticipated mergers and acquisitions.

ETR Cloud Infrastructure Survey 

ETR conducted a Cloud Infrastructure survey to measure utilization, workloads, and spend on cloud providers. This includes Iaas/PaaS workload share, public vs. private distributions, spend drivers, vendor pervasion, and wallet share across AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and other players in the space. In light of the near-term ‘lull’ in cloud spend, the medium-term outlook (next three years) points to robust growth in spend and workloads shifting to cloud infrastructure with, at the margin, some market share spread across more providers.

ETR Connect Highlights Datadog 

Anyone who knows the name ETR knows that we are obsessive about our data. Everything we do is based on our spending intentions data collected directly from our curated community of IT decision makers. Data is the foundation of our syndicated survey offerings that support spending intentions analysis for public tech companies and the proprietary awareness, evaluation, and utilization metrics for leading private tech vendors. That same data is also the cornerstone of our qualitative reports and analysis, as well as the underlying pillar for the ETR Insights interviews and industry analysis. As I said, if you know ETR, you already know all that…BUT what you might not know is that our data is also the bedrock and differentiator for our expert network platform. That’s right, ETR also has an expert network offering; it’s 100% data-backed, just like everything we do., and it’s called ETR Connect.
