Computer Futures has undertaken a survey to find out what the number one technical challenge senior decision makers in Ireland are currently facing.

Computer Futures put the question to IT Managers, Development Managers, VP of Engineering, CTOs and CIOs based in Ireland.

Mark Kelly, Country Director, had this to say about the results of the survey:

"These survey findings generally fall in line with what we have been experiencing in the market. Our customers are currently finding it challenging to effectively and efficiently integrate new systems with existing systems, so these results are not surprising.

The only surprise is the low percentage of those who said security is an issue. People may not have been so forthcoming about this as a challenge though, due to the possibility of many organisations having security issues themselves and not taking the appropriate steps to resolve them."
