Like everyone else, during the Great Recession IT departments suffered budget cuts, hiring freezes and layoffs. They did not, however, get a reduction in responsibility. As a matter of fact, during this time new legislation mandating high availability and disaster recovery ramped up, as did consumer-driven demand for technologies and services that require more data storage and management. If you’re in IT, and you feel like you could use a nice long vacation, you’re not alone. Out of necessity, IT departments have been slogging forward with a mix of old and new technologies and low headcounts for years now, so it’s difficult to convince management to cut anyone a break. The fact is, you’re probably not going to get headcount, but the infrastructure you have to manage and the services (and service levels) that you have to provide are just going to increase.
