Futurum Research Report Shows Visibility is a Top Concern in Digital Transformation Initiatives

Keys to Success Including Automating IT Ops & Adopting Advanced Infrastructure Soltions

AUSTIN, Texas – February 13, 2019 – Zenoss Inc., a leader in software-defined IT operations, today announced the publication of a new digital transformation study developed by Futurum Research, commissioned by Zenoss. The report, "Digital Transformation - 9 Key Insights," covers critical data points that measure the current state of digital transformation and improvements in business agility among enterprise organizations. The research is the result of a survey of 500 executives and IT professionals.

"Digital transformation is an ongoing process of leveraging digital technologies to build flexibility, agility and adaptability into business processes," said Daniel Newman, founder and principal analyst at Futurum. "This report offers key insights that will help organizations learn the keys to ensuring success in their critical digital transformation initiatives."

Digital transformation has become a necessary process for most large enterprises. Many who haven't embraced digital transformation have paid the consequences — they are ill-equipped to compete with more agile organizations, and they have become less relevant.

Report Highlights:

  • 48 percent of organizations have their digital transformation strategies being led by the CEO
  • 71 percent described digital transformation as being at the center of all business decisions
  • 65 percent are adopting agile development tools to accelerate speed to market and improve business agility
  • 37 percent cite blind spots in IT infrastructure as their top concern when contemplating digital transformation initiatives
  • 33 percent cite their ability to scale monitoring as the top concern

"Business agility is one of the greatest traits common to modern, successful businesses," said Brian Wilson, chief customer officer at Zenoss.
