Cloud set to replace on-premise
More than three quarters of global decision makers believe traditional on-premise IT systems and enterprise applications are not capable of reacting to rapid change, with 86% saying the cloud offers more flexibility. More than two-thirds expect to be fully cloud-based in the next two years.
But only 18% will be working with a new vendor
Yet, two thirds say the pandemic has made them reluctant to make decisions about IT investments, and almost half will develop their own enterprise applications environment internally or work with their existing vendor.
Top three drivers: innovation, security and productivity
The top three drivers among two fifths of decision-makers include the ability to innovate faster, improve privacy and security, and boost productivity. What’s notable is that decision-makers using a new vendor to make changes scored considerably higher in almost every single driver.
