Digital transformation is the path that any company and public institution wishing to survive in today’s world must follow. It wasn’t long ago when technologies deployments, such as data center consolidations and ERP modernization, were the primary focus. Therefore, CEOs together with CIOs, CDOs and CMOs are now expected to bring the entire business even further into a digital future.
According to Forrester, 2018 will be another positive year for global economies and technology sector. The worldwide tech market for business and government purchases of technology goods, software, and services will grow by around 5% in 2018 and 2019. Meanwhile, over 60% of executives believe they are behind in their digital transformation and 20% of CEOs will fail to act. As a result, those firms will be acquired or begin to perish.
