  2. 2. Millennials and the changing IT landscape We set out to understand just how different Millennials are in the world of IT – what perspectives they bring to their role, what work environments and opportunities they are looking for from their employers and what technologies they are prioritizing – to get a glimpse into the transformation taking place within IT. We surveyed 2,500 IT workers across US, UK, Japan, Brazil and India. Millennials are leaning more heavily toward public cloud adoption, innovative technologies and looking for more flexibility in their roles than their peers. Their peers, perhaps influenced by their perspectives, are not far behind them.

Millennials in IT are on the front foot in cloud adoption and driving innovation Across all markets, Millennial technology decision makers (ITDMs) are nearly all in agreement (97 percent) that all organizations with data stored in the cloud should use container technology five years from now. Nearly half of Millennials are interested in learning about conversation bots on the job at 46 percent compared with 39 percent of non-Millennials, and 41 percent of Millennials are interested in robotics v. 30 percent of non- Millennials. In the U.S., nearly nine in 10 (87 percent) of Millennials v. 81 percent of Gen X and Baby Boomers believe it is important they work for an organization that allows them to use open-source technologies. Across the five markets surveyed, 41 percent of Millennials v. 34 percent of non-Millennials agree strongly they need to be able to use open-source technologies. varconnector=newbuilder.ConsoleConnector().listen(); varconnector=newbuilder.ConsoleConnector().listen(); varconnector=newbuilder.ConsoleConnector().listen(); 97% 46% 87%
  6. 6. Despite their cloud adoption, Millennials and IT pros in general believe hybrid is a priority and here to stay Nearly all (97 percent) ITDM millennials say that connecting to their datacenter will be important in five years’ time. Across markets, 85 percent of Millennials report their organizations use private cloud solutions currently.

Nine in 10 (90 percent) of Millennials say frequently using their own approach is faster than their organization’s preferred approach. One third of Millennials are more likely to say their approach is faster “all the time” (33 percent v. 29 percent Gen X and Baby Booomers). In fact, nearly 1 in 5 (19%) Millennials start looking for a new job if their organization does not take their suggestion to change an IT policy or process, more than non- millennials (roughly 1 in 10 or 13 percent).

  11. 11. How can organizations empower digital transformation in IT? • Encourage a culture that supports an agile, creative work environment, where IT feels empowered to bring new ideas to the table and ways of getting work done. • Provide support for on-the-job IT trainings where IT can further build their skillsets and learn about technologies that interests them. • Carve out space for incubation as an organization to experiment with new, emerging technologies, such as conversation bots, robotics, virtual reality and augmented reality.
