surveying those professionals in a variety of industries, the report
sheds light on the mindsets and technology investments needed to
catalyze IT evolution in enterprise technology environments.
Key findings from the survey include:
4 out of 5 IT professionals say DX is imperative for survival, but 64%
need significant help from outside partners.
The top investments in technology to support digital transformation
are focused on migrating to the cloud and IT security, plus a
significant emphasis on groundbreaking technologies like artificial
intelligence, big data, and IoT.
57% of respondents said their preferred partners for transformation
are smaller, agile service providers.
