Only one third (37%) of organisations have the skills and technology needed to keep pace with digital projects initiated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
So says integration and API platform provider MuleSoft in its The State of Business and IT Innovation report, based on a survey of 1,739 line of business (LoB) employees in organisations with at least 250 employees.
More than half of LoB employees are frustrated by the speed with which their IT team can deliver digital projects (51%) and the challenge of connecting different IT systems, applications and data at their organisation (54%).
More than 80% say they need quick and easy access to data, IT systems and applications to do their jobs effectively and remain productive. Yet less than one third (29%) think their organisation is very effective at connecting and using data from multiple sources to drive business value.
