A significant percent of CIOs and other IT decision-makers consider digital transformation "Topic A" on their technology agenda, according to a recent survey from BMC. Successful transformations are currently creating new sources of revenue, improving operations and establishing unique competitive advantages. The automation of manual processes, however, is essential. In fact, nearly all the survey respondents believe that technology and automation will spread from IT to all areas of the business by 2020 to "transform everything." Many strongly agree that businesses that fail to embrace IT automation as a driver of digital businesses won't even exist 10 years from now. Fortunately, the vast majority of survey respondents said their organization has all the resources required to continue innovating technology to reach their goals, with strong alignment between lines of business (LoBs) and the IT department. And most have embraced DevOps as a means to help teams complete projects and achieve strategic objectives. More than 650 global IT decision-makers took part in the research.
