Less than 10% of enterprises have achieved their digital transformation goals, according to Ovum’s latest ICT Enterprise Insights program, based on interviews with more than 6,300 enterprises.
The most advanced organisations are in the telecoms and banking sectors, which have respective scores of 43.9% and 43% on the Ovum digital maturity index.
The ICT Enterprise Insights program also examines the role of digital technologies on the path to digital transformation, including Big Data, blockchain, IoT, platform architecture/APIs, artifcial intelligence (AI) and microservices.
Its research shows that enterprises are most advanced in the adoption of Big Data and API-based architectures, with close to 40% of enterprises actively trialling or deploying these technologies and just under 50% considering or planning to do so in the future.
Microservices and IoT are less advanced in terms of active deployment, but over 50% of enterprises are considering or planning to deploy them in the future. While AI and blockchain are much discussed, their use for the purposes of digital transformation is much less developed.
