Indava surveyed more than 1,000 senior business leaders and IT decision makers in key global markets

Dubai United Arab Emirates: Ndava, a leading provider of next-generation technology services, today unveiled the results of a new research study showing that companies around the world are using lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic to continue their strategies for continuing to adopt develop digital services. The study included the opinions of top business leaders and IT decision makers from the US, UK, Germany, Nordic countries, Australia and Singapore from companies operating in a wide range of industries.

Expectations for the continued rapid adoption of digital technologies adopted during the pandemic period

The vast majority of senior employees surveyed indicated that the pandemic revealed serious problems in their technology landscape, 87% of them had to move quickly to accelerate efforts to adopt digital technology, and 99% of them reported that there is room to improve their preparedness, meaning that they had to take a rapid approach to adapt to the new normal created by the pandemic. This approach of working and delivering tasks within short deadlines to meet immediate challenges has proven to be highly effective. As a result, 84% of organizations indicated that their acceptance of digital technologies had accelerated by up to ten years due to the rapid technological leaps they had made.

Speaking at the event, Ndava CEO John Cotterell said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown global companies how much flexibility and agility they really need when designing and implementing digital strategies.

Business environments changed overnight, and companies had to work fast to adapt to the realities of new technology and use them to solve emerging problems. The pandemic has proven its validity and usefulness in accelerating the adoption of digital technologies, and it has become very important for companies to keep pace with the development of technology in order to follow their digital adoption strategies, and to have the ability to deal with unexpected problems. ”

The new norm is to accelerate the adoption of digital technologies in the face of rising budgets and the desire for change

Rapid adoption of digital technologies is expected to continue, with 92% of businesses surveyed saying they have increased their digital adoption budget, while 88% indicated they have adopted programs to improve to respond to weaknesses. 95% also expressed their desire to invest more in initiatives to develop the skills they need to develop and improve their digital capabilities. Study participants also identified their best approach to these improvements and estimated the delivery rate of these technologies at 70% in the short term and 30% in the long term. This estimate is fully consistent with efforts to accelerate the adoption of digital technologies that are fast and flexible, rather than the traditional approach to digital transformation that is difficult to properly orientate to deal with problems.

John Cotterell added: “Many companies are now realizing the benefits of a rapid approach to digital transformation and investing money to do so. The main challenge for these companies is to do a clear assessment and review to ensure they have real strategies. for digital transformation and development, and they need to take advantage of technologies “Putting the user at the center of these efforts will be key for those companies that want to stay competitive and at the forefront of their industries, and need consider improving services and offerings, and continue to innovate rather than replace them. ”

Careful integration of new technologies

Efforts to develop cloud technologies and artificial intelligence were also of great importance to the companies that participated in the study, and new and unique concepts such as “Metaverse” were also very popular among the respondents.
