Industry study

Less silo + More platform thinking, 5 takeaways from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services white paper in association with ThoughtWorks

Less hype + More hyperscale

Be a modern digital business

The secrets of successful digital transformation

A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting, sponsored by ThoughtWorks

 

Seventy-four percent of firms are undergoing digital transformation - or investigating one, but only 34% of CEOs reported success. ThoughtWorks commissioned Forrester Consulting to explore what enables firms to execute successful enterprise modernization and/or digital transformation initiatives. The study surveying the views of 400+ technology leaders reveals:

 

  • The right talent is hard to come by regardless of how successful firms are with their enterprise modernization efforts. Successful firms recruit, invest and retain knowledgeable staff (71%) and work with trusted partners (76%) to compensate.
     
  • 81% of decision-makers agree that utilizing a trusted partner’s skills/expertise is as or more important for success than the technology solution they provided.
     
  • Modernization efforts are not one and done initiatives. Decision-makers realize continuous improvement (81%) and dedicated budget (71%) are critical factors of success.
