Enterprises are fast approaching a tipping point in their digital transformation journeys.
Enterprises are fast approaching a tipping point in their digital transformation journeys, where their technology investments offer them a competitive edge, rather than just supporting their day-to-day operations.
The findings come from 451 Research’s view, that the shift towards focusing on business intelligence (BI), machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI) and big data is indicative of how enterprise attitudes to data are changing, with many more now appreciating its value to the wider business and the competitive edge it can provide.
451 Research said: “The growth opportunity around data is clear, with almost 30% of organisations saying ML/AI is a top priority in 2018 while just 12% of respondents use these solutions today.
“Meanwhile, usage of much-hyped technologies such as Blockchain remains very low, but more organisations will begin to move from tyre kicking to actual deployment over the next year, with 12% of [the report’s] respondents citing Blockchain as a top IT priority for 2018.”
It added that enterprise appetites for these new technologies are predicted to rise this year, as enterprises have now moved to address the shortcomings in the cost and performance of their infrastructure, by moving to adopt cloud and service-orientated IT consumption models.Return to internet news headlines
