AS MANY as 62 percent of IT managers in Slovakia do not consider social networks to be relevant and reliable sources of information. 15 percent regard them as relevant and reliable sources while 23 percent hold a neutral position, according to a survey conducted by Tempest.

One third of IT managers (32 percent) do not use social networks at all. 29 percent are active on Facebook, while 20 percent use LinkedIn and 16 percent use Google+. Only 3 percent use Twitter actively.

The survey also revealed that more than half of managers (58 percent) do not plan to relocate the operation of their services to an external cloud within two years. The managers cited the physical absence of data on the premises of their organisation and problematic legislation as the biggest obstacles to this means of technology security.

IT managers who would consider using cloud services would transfer their company’s data deposits, certain applications and e-mail services. In terms of location, specialists would prefer a local cloud service provider to a global one.

As many as 42 percent of respondents have no plans to outsource within two years.
