1Why IT Remains Unprepared for Digital Transformation, Big Data
While a majority of IT executives and tech professionals report that their organization have launched a digital transformation project, few describe their technology stack as “sophisticated,” according to a survey from Commvault. The resulting report, titled “Measuring IT’s Readiness for Digital Business,” reveals that only a minority of companies have completely integrated their technology stack. Analytics represents another stumbling point, as employees have access to a limited amount of data when they must make key decisions. A total of 450 IT executives and 750 technology professionals took part in the study. This slide show presents selected findings from the survey.

2Technology Stacks Lack Sophistication
3Employees Need More Data for Decisions
Survey respondents in the U.S. said that, when they have to make key decisions, their employees have access to only 46 percent of their organization’s data. No other nation represented in the survey reported that their employees had access to more than just over one-half of their company’s data. Survey respondents from Germany reported the highest level of data access at 51 percent.
4U.S., Other Nations Struggle to Integrate Technology Stack
5Better Data Management Emerges as Key Success Factor
Commvault says that 51 percent of survey respondents feel that “better data collection and management” have emerged as essential to success and 49 percent said the same about tools that can analyze increasingly complex data. Both responses surpassed those which cited the need for a strong corporate reputation (36 percent) and high quarterly earnings (33 percent).
