Current IT strategy not supporting the enterprise

IT managers are unclear about their data management strategies, and are wasting time and money on the unhelpful and unintegrated technology they have in place already – so says the results of recent research by market analyst Vanson Bourne and enterprise applications vendor Oracle.

The report finds that three-quarters of the organisations surveyed (UK companies with a turnover of over £250 million) do not have an integrated environment. This leads to problems with reconfiguration of applications after hardware downtime, which for 68% of respondents takes as long as a week. For two-fifths of respondents, this affects up to three of their corporate applications, but 15% have as may as ten affected.

How many applications are affected during hardware reconfiguration?
