In order to optimize performance and gain efficiency, these companies are moving step by step to the cloud environment. Nevertheless, certain regulatory and legal compliance issues still exist. Over 90% of the energy companies tend to invest in IT systems management and this trend is likely to continue through 2014. Around 92% of the energy firms have recently deployed some forms of green IT solution aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; this domain is expected to attract investments in the forthcoming year. The research study presents a holistic view of the ICT investment priorities in the global energy sector. It sheds light on the key factors driving the investment decisions, highlights the key ICT investment trends, and also outlines possible future changes in the field.
