Digital transformation is here to stay. Cloud services and the use of data are accelerating and DT programs evolving as businesses adapt to the current pandemic and position themselves to remain competitive. Data remains a crucial asset in the digital economy with its collection, storage, location, analysis and protection all critical to success.

Our latest Digital Transformation & Cloud Survey provides compelling insights on digital transformation (DT) trends including:

  • what types of technology are businesses investing in to drive DT (and how);
  • main challenges they face undertaking DT; and
  • key current trends in cloud contracts both providers and users of cloud services should be aware of.

Here we highlight the key takeaways from the Survey for the TMT Sector, as it remains at the forefront of DT. These takeaways showcase the exciting opportunities available for TMT businesses (and key risks to anticipate) in 2022 and beyond.
