How Enterprise Corporate Sustainability Goals Impact Digital Infrastructure Purchasing

By: Mary Johnston TurnerResearch Vice President, Future of Digital Infrastructure


This IDC Survey Spotlight provides insight into how enterprise corporate sustainability goals are impacting digital infrastructure purchasing decisions. The document contains data from IDC's Future of Digital Infrastructure 2Q21 Agenda Survey, conducted in June 2021. The survey was designed to identify trends in enterprise digital infrastructure architecture, operations, sourcing, and strategies for the next two years. It solicited input from 254 United States-based enterprise decision makers.

"Overall, sustainability goals will have moderate to high impact on enterprise digital infrastructure purchase decisions and will be likely to help motivate use of consumption-based digital infrastructure subscription agreements," explains Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, IDC Future of Digital Infrastructure Agenda research. "Organizations that describe their current level of digital infrastructure resiliency preparedness as "exceptional" are much more likely to rate sustainability goals as high impact (62%). Ability to improve IT infrastructure consumption and utilization is most frequently (65%) identified as the dimension of corporate sustainability impacted by digital infrastructure purchase decisions."
