Clear business management, agile processes and access to skills for new technologies will ultimately enable companies to overcome their challenges today while preparing for the opportunities of tomorrow.
To better understand how IT managers successfully deal with these challenges, Suse commissioned a global survey from the market research institute Insight Avenue. This survey investigated the approaches IT decision-makers are taking and which technologies they are focusing on.
Even before the extreme pressure of the pandemic made a shift to digitized business models a mission-critical factor, the survey found that IT executives have only a short time to drive IT transformation in their organizations.
Nearly 90 percent of respondents worldwide see investment in digitization over the next two years as essential to bringing about tangible change in their companies.
Long-standing legacy complex applications, infrastructure and processes are now being challenged. Nearly two-thirds of respondents see infrastructure simplification as their top investment priority for the next 24 months.
IT decision makers are aware that they need to implement a modern approach, but at the same time, careful evaluation and planning are required for successful implementation.
