Nimbus Ninety, the UK’s independent research community for disruptive business and technology leaders, have released their latest research into digital transformation in partnership with Ensono, a leading cloud solutions and Hybrid IT services provider. The Digital Trends Report interviewed 251 senior stakeholders responsible for digital transformation initiatives and found that 36% view increased competition from digitally driven companies as a challenge, yet more than half (52%) of respondents rated their organisations’ progress toward achieving their digital ambitions as adequate or poor.
The report, which reviews forces and barriers to digital transformation, revealed that 30% still do not feel well-equipped to seize the opportunities presented by digital. Conversely, 46% stated their organisation has significantly transformed over the past 12 months, suggesting a widening gap between those who are embracing digital transformation and those who have yet to start.
The report also measured barriers to digital transformation, with legacy systems taking an overwhelming lead in blocking progress.
