Top Five Barriers to Tech Adoption

By Darryl K. Taft  |  Posted 2015-03-27

It's no secret that today, businesses are largely only as successful as the technology they rely on—and the IT departments that keep that technology running. In many ways, this means a business' success relies on the speed at which IT can adopt significant new technologies. So SolarWinds, a provider of IT performance management software, recently set out to discover the current state of new technology adoption, the barriers to adoption and the needs of IT pros tasked with delivering impactful business outcomes as a result of that adoption. SolarWinds' report, IT Trends Report 2015: Business at the Speed of IT, found that nearly all (93 percent) of IT pros who responded to the survey feel adopting significant new technologies—those that require more than 10 percent of the annual IT budget—is at least somewhat important to their organizations' long-term success. However, the report also identified several key barriers and challenges that stall technology adoption and consequently their impact on business. This slide show, developed from eWEEK reporting and SolarWinds' report, takes a look at the top five barriers to new technology adoption. There really aren't any grand surprises here, illustrating just how pervasive these barriers are and the need to solve these problems—which everyone is aware of—so IT can finally drive business success in the way it is meant to.
