Every business needs to go digital to survive, and it goes beyond digitizing processes. IT leaders are taking the lead to transform and successfully operate in a mobile-first, cloud-first world. Microsoft conducted an online survey for two weeks in October with 291 IT leaders from medium to large organisations in 10 markets in Asia Pacific to seek their views on their journey and the new future.
A Microsoft Asia Pacific survey of 291 IT decision makers of medium to large enterprises across 10 markets in Asia Pacific showed that IT leaders in the region are leading the charge to harness disruptive technologies enabling their transformation to a mobile-first and cloud-first world. More than half of CIOs (53%) polled allocated 11% to 30% of their budget towards using new technologies and another 27% of respondents allocated more than 30%.
Microsoft Asia recently commissioned a survey with 2,900 working professionals in eight Asia Pacific markets and confirmed that they prefer using one device to get more done – at home, in the office and everywhere in between.
In cities worldwide, a transformation is occurring, driven by the ability to pull insights from data. New research shows that government organizations worldwide stand to gain $206 billion in value over the next four years by connecting data streams, using new analytics tools, and delivering insights to more people.
