Solution Provider Defines the DNA of Digital Enablement, IDs Six Common Characteristics of Digitally Driven Organizations
NEW YORK, March 22, 2016 – According to Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), 2016 marks the beginning of a new era in technology – the move from a previously IT-defined world to one that is focused on the possibilities unlocked by a digitally defined one.
“We’re seeing a tremendous change taking shape among enterprise organizations worldwide in which the idea of ‘digital transformation’ becomes a predominant priority for CEOs and CIOs alike,” says Jim Cook, Vice President of Services Sales, Logicalis US. “Now that people are tapping the power of the cloud and discovering the virtually unlimited potential it offers with cloud-based as-a-service offerings, the power of what technology can really do is being seen and embraced by people who, before now, never considered themselves technologists. In the corporate world, this digital awareness translates to better, faster, deeper communications capabilities, and CEOs see a clear connection to sales, making the transformation from a company with technology in the back room to a truly ‘digital’ organization a top priority.”
Logicalis recently conducted a survey of more than 400 organizations across 24 different countries and one theme rang true: More than 90 percent of the CIOs queried said they were bypassed by line-of-business colleagues who purchased their own IT hardware, software or cloud services – some of them all of the time, and most of them some of the time. In order to regain control and to solidify their value within their own organizations, CIOs reacted quickly to implement transformational projects that would counteract the need for shadow IT.
Using evidence gained through its work with more than 6,500 enterprise customers worldwide and coupling that with what was learned through the survey, Logicalis has identified six characteristics that are common among digitally driven organizations.
