ReasonsToBuy
Energy companies are cautious about the deployment of technologies (on-premise or hosted), as they operate in a highly regulated environment. This is further supported by the survey, which reveals that energy companies largely prefer deploying technologies on-site rather than as a hosted service.

The survey results indicate that energy companies are keen to improve their operational efficiencies by streamlining their core business processes. This is evident from Kables survey, where raising efficiency (X) is rated highly in terms of the business objectives influencing energy companies IT investments.

The survey shows that the IT objective of use IT to support revenue growth, is the most important factor influencing IT investment strategies amongst energy companies, with average rating of X on a scale of 1 to 4.

Financial stability is the most important criteria for energy companies in choosing a potential ICT vendor, with the highest rating of X on the scale of 1 to 4. The financial stability of an ICT vendor ensures that it is capable of providing support and maintenance relating to its technology in the future.

The survey finds that the majority of energy companies either have a very complex or a somewhat complex ICT infrastructure.
