Organizations are carefully examining the state of their IT infrastructure as they dedicate themselves to a digital transformation, according to a recent survey from SignalFx. With this transition considered a primary strategic goal for many businesses, CEOs are often taking the lead in preparing for this major change. However, both CIOs and their teams are also playing critical roles. To ensure success, companies are adopting virtualization and containerization solutions, hosting infrastructure in the cloud and deploying automation solutions, among other steps. With these steps, survey respondents feel very confident about what lies ahead. "Digital transformation is very much a business objective," said Karthik Rau, CEO of SignalFx. "But, in order to succeed, organizations must have a strategy that includes the tools, platforms, processes and people to ensure an operational transformation. True transformation requires rapid and ongoing change to keep up with the market, promote innovation and handle massive scale. We … were pleased to discover that there is significant investment being put into readiness measures related to modern infrastructure and architecture." More than 215 IT professionals took part in the research.
