Studies show that IT workloads are
rising as technology is added but staffing
levels plateau. By Patrick Thibodeau
DATA CENTERS continue to be filled with more and more IT systems, but enterprises aren’t necessarily hiring more people to manage that new equipment, two surveys have found. In a survey conducted in March by AFCOM, a data center managers group, 37% of the respondents said they had reduced their data
center staffs over the past three years, and 29% said they kept their
staffing levels the same. The balance, nearly 35%, increased staffing.
