3 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia3 Introduction and Key Findings In this survey we found, among other things that: ■ BYOD is happening very quickly whether CIOs like it or not ■ Security is a major concern and becoming more-so ■ Unified Comms is a trend not a technology but its rise is also on the increase ■ Mobile Data and Hardware spends will continue to increase ■ Local conditions have greater influence over ICT spending than global ■ The biggest area of communications related growth is IP Telephony (VOIP) ■ Public VPN is rapidly replacing private data networks ■ Virtualisation continues to be the most relevant technology 3 These and other findings paint an exciting picture for the future of communications, mobility and BYOD in Australia, but also create significant challenges for CIOs in meeting business demands. Read on for more detail and analysis This edition of Insights Quarterly focuses on communications and connectivity issues, with special attention to emerging technologies and practices such as mobile computing and bring your own device (BYOD) computing.

4 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia4 The Hype-o-meter Respondents were asked to rate a number of technologies in terms of whether they believe them to be overhyped or underhyped, and whether they are important or not. Overall results are expressed as a four point radar (“spider”) diagram for each technology. The thinner the shape the more important CIOs believe the technology to be. The higher the shape the more the technology is believed to be overhyped. The Hype-O-Meter shows that CIOs generally accept or reject a new technology based on its merits. They evaluate technology in terms of business and ICT objectives, which evolve over time but which do not change nearly so quickly. The next section establishes the context of these technologies by looking at the importance of these objectives. Example Hype-o-meter

9 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia9 Factors Affecting ICT Spending Local Conditions Have Greater Influence over ICT Spend Than Global

10 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia10 Security At All Levels Remains A Concern Comms and Connectivity Concerns

11 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia11 Comms and Connectivity Investment The Biggest Area of Comms Related Growth is IP Telephony (VOIP)

12 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia12 The IQ Matrix Introducing the IQ Matrix (Investment vs Implementation) The IQ Matrix shows how various technologies are maturing in today’s market. Respondents were asked for the level of currenti mplementation and planned investment they had in the listed technologies or trends. The answers were then analysed and put into a quadrant, mapping implementation against investment. The positioning of a technology within the IQ Matrix shows their status relative to each other within each matrix and are not designed to reflect actual market shares.

23 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia23 Conclusions The pace of technological change, and the imperatives of new technologies and business models such as cloud computing and the proliferation of mobile devices, are forcing many CIOs to adapt to new realities, in many cases more quickly than they might like. A good example is bring your own device (BYOD) computing, where CIOs’ hands are in many cases being forced by the speed of adoption by the user community. There is little sign that this pace of change will slow. CIOs have never had an easy job – it is now much more difficult, given the range of competing priorities they need to juggle. And few of these priorities exist in isolation – they comprise a complex web of interacting trends, all of which impact different organisations in different ways. But some things remain the same.Connectivity and communications have always been an integral part of ICT. They are becoming more so. The technology is increasingly about having business operations, individuals, and devices communicating with each other. And that will also not change.

24 Research by Connection Research | Connectivity and End-User Computing in Australia24 IQ Vol 3: Sample and Objectives By Industry sector By employee numbers Survey objectives: With a focus on Connectivity and End-User Computing; identify CIO challenges, what the spending intentions are, what technology is being used and supported, what is hype and what is reality?
