The Data Economy Report: 2017 United Kingdom Edition
Digital technology has arguably been the biggest disruptor for individuals and organisations in the last twenty years. It has changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we spend our time and how we develop and grow our businesses. For businesses, digital has not just created new products and services, but fundamentally shifted business models and the dynamic between business and customer, business and supplier, business and employee. It has become a significant force for value and revenue creation, but one that brings with it many challenges.
EVOLUTION 2017 Data Economy Report is a large, global study measuring the digital state of today’s businesses and the challenges they face in putting their data to work to drive innovation. The report also acts as a 2017 benchmark for organisations accelerating into the “Cloud Era” and gauging where they are in balancing infrastructure and applications in their business and how this is set to evolve as we approach 2020.
Some of the key themes and stats explored in the report include:
• Digital dependence and investment priorities
• Cloud and on-premise – best of both worlds
• Data: taking back control in uncertain times
