Summary

A larger proportion of utilities have indicated that they are increasing their ICT spend in 2016 compared to the previous year.

Key Findings

Networking equipment and cyber security hardware are the two biggest items on utilities' hardware budget, likely driven by the related challenges to security and communications posed by smarter systems

Software licenses are still the largest single item in software budgets-many utility-specific solutions are not available through XaaS models and utilities are still spending significant sums on licensing specialist and custom software such as energy market models

IaaS is the fastest growing cloud solution, in terms of new investment

Synopsis

ICT investment trends in utilities presents the findings from a survey of 112 utility companies regarding their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) investment trends. The survey investigates how utility companies currently allocate their ICT budgets across the core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure: hardware, software, IT services, communications, and consulting. The report illustrates the core technologies that enterprises are investing in, including business intelligence, IoT, cloud computing, and network services. The survey also highlights the approach to purchasing technology adopted by utility companies. The report aims to provide a better insight to ICT vendors and service providers when pitching their solutions to utility companies.
