The survey reveals that 60 percent of IT leaders - from managers to CIOs identified championing technology, which saves capital dollars that can be allocated to other projects, as having the biggest impact on employee success. Championing technology that automates mission-critical processes for the company was acknowledged as having the second biggest impact.

“As the year ends, we wanted to take a close look at what would help storage professionals advance in their careers, and we noticed that embracing new technologies that save the company millions of dollars in hardware costs and automate current processes topped the list,” said Frank Kettenstock, vice president of marketing at MonoSphere. “Our survey clearly indicated that in today’s IT world, employees who recommend or purchase leading-edge storage technologies that have a clear return on investment are rewarded.”
