IBM Study: Majority of Surveyed Companies are Not Prepared for IT Needs of the Future, Say U.S. and U.K. Tech Leaders

ARMONK, N.Y., Jan. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Many corporate IT leaders say their organizations are not prepared for the future IT needs of the business and nearly all are moving to advance their transition to cloud infrastructure, according to a new IBM (NYSE: IBM) survey of leaders at mid-sized and large companies in the United States and United Kingdom.

Of the 380 CIOs and CTOs who participated in the survey, 60% say their company’s IT modernization program is not yet ready for the future, according to the recently completed The State of IT Transformation Study conducted by the Managed Infrastructure Services unit of IBM’s Global Technology Services division. Nearly a quarter of CIOs and CTOs (24%) surveyed say their company is just starting its IT modernization journey or has yet to begin modernizing, with about a third surveyed saying they are still in the midst of transformation.

As a result, more than 95% of IT leaders surveyed said they are looking to adopt public, hybrid or private cloud strategies. Of those, many are moving at an aggressive pace — the study reveals that 53% of respondents are aggressively pursuing a public cloud strategy, 48% a hybrid cloud strategy and 45% a private cloud strategy.
