The advent of hybrid working environment has put pressure on Korean IT leaders to balance flexibility, security and economic feasibility on their edge, HPE Aruba Korea business unit manager Charles Kang said on Wednesday.
The company surveyed Korean companies to plan infrastructure in hybrid working environment. 38% of respondents said they will increase investment into the cloud while 35% said they would increase investment into artificial intelligence (AI)-based networking.
South Korean companies are reacting agilely despite the difficult environment with increased investment, Kang said.
Korean IT leaders were looking to transition their existing CAPEX to service-type solution.
“Network management agility is more crucial than ever right now,” Kang said. 64% of respondent were looking for a subscription model for the needed hardware and software to boost their infrastructure, the manager said, which was higher than the global average of 55%.
This shows that businesses in the area can expect a positive outlook in the country going forward, Kang said.
