NEW YORK, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly released study, 85% of large companies in the US rate themselves as 'very well' or 'well prepared' for Digital Transformation. However, few of these companies are actually engaged in truly transformational activities.
The study was conducted by the global innovation company etventure, with the support of market research firm YouGov — and targeted senior executives at companies with annual revenues of $250 million per year or greater.
The survey indicates that many companies may be too optimistic about Digital Transformation. While the overwhelming majority of companies surveyed rank digitization as critically important to their business, many activities they classify as Digital Transformation are only incremental changes.
Some other key findings:
"There is a great deal of activity in the digital space, but very little of it is truly transformational," says Lukas Bower, CEO North America at etventure. "Our findings show that Digital Transformation is still a side activity for most companies. Developing mobile apps, improving customer experience and digitizing operations are all worthwhile initiatives — but these are only incremental changes. The lack of truly transformational digital innovation is a concern, given the rapid rise of digital disruption across all industries."
