Why Transformation Is a Top Business Priority

More than nine out of 10 companies are either undergoing or preparing for a major transformation, according to industry research. And they're doing so because the potential consequences of "status quo" are severe, according to a recent survey from Headspring. These transformations bring together IT and business to plot a strategic course that will hopefully benefit their companies for the future through reduced costs, increased business agility and improved customer relationships. On the tech side, such a transition will require the upgrading or replacing of legacy systems, in addition to the launching of new mobility initiatives. Without such steps, businesses risk losing market share, customers and credibility. The findings also indicate that management and rank-and-file workers need to get on the same page for transformational success, as there are clearly divided perspectives when it comes to the prioritization of mobility efforts and the modernization of IT. Nearly 260 professionals, the vast majority of them in IT, took part in the research.
