How Many Network Admins are Interested In SDN or Big Data?

The perception of the IT administrator job is often influenced by buzzwords like Big Data or SDN. But the reality of the job often looks different. That’s why Paessler wanted to know what really drives you in your everyday working life. What are your favorite tasks and how much time do you have to do them? Which technologies are you using already and which are not even under consideration at the moment?

 

PRTG MONITORS YOUR NETWORK 24/7 TO TIMELY ALERT YOU TO ISSUES BEFORE THEY BECOME EMERGENCIES.

To get a clearer picture about this, we launched the Worldwide Paessler Survey 2016 “Perception vs Reality”. We reached out to IT admins all over the globe in five different languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Portuguese)—independent of whether they use a monitoring solution or not.

Within five weeks, over 650 participants in 49 countries shared their voice with us.

Here are the results:
