Against a backdrop of fast-evolving global economic challenges, businesses under pressure to improve productivity and efficiency must also commit to the technological tools that could drive it. Unisys commissioned us to talk to industry leaders to find out the reality behind organizations’ adoption of a range of technologies – from Cloud and data analytics through to AI to automation.
To better understand organizations’ progress with digital transformation across technologies, we surveyed 2,264 business and technology leaders in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. The sample includes 70% IT decision-makers and developers and 30% C-suite executives. All work for companies with at least $500 million in revenue ($250M+ in Australia and New Zealand) and that use cloud applications for their work.
Our study revealed that to drive value, successful organizations must overcome challenges such as lack of strategic alignment, lack of governance, complex technological landscapes, skills gaps, incompatible operating models and heightened levels of risk. Investing in technology alone is not enough; successful long-term adoption requires full and thoughtful integration as well as careful management of technology’s role within an organization
