IBM Survey Shows Nearly Quarter of Companies Unprepared For IT Modernization

By Luke Bellos

Cloud Infrastructure has become one of the most necessary innovations for business technology in the past decade, and according to the latest report by IBM, many companies are ill-equipped for the future.

The survey is called The State of IT Transformation Study, and was conducted by the Managed Infrastructure Services unit of IBM's Global Technology Services division, and involved the leaders of the 380 participating CIOs and CTOs in the United States and United Kingdom. Results found that 60% say their company's IT modernization program is not yet ready for the future, and 24% say their company is just starting its IT modernization journey or has yet to begin modernizing. Because of these findings, more than 95% of IT leaders surveyed said they are looking to adopt public, hybrid or private cloud strategies.

"Our clients are looking to accelerate IT modernization by leveraging cloud models - both public and hybrid, data, AI, automation and other key technologies to help shape, scale and manage more effectively massive, complex, global architectures," said Archana Vemulapalli, General Manager, IBM Infrastructure Services - Offerings and CTO. "In this rapidly changing digital business environment, organizations can bring in the right technology and the right partners to help aggregate, integrate, build and maintain a scalable digital business, while also enforcing effective governance."

This has been an exceptionally important time for cloud data and services, as the coronavirus pandemic has left many businesses scrambling to improve their IT infrastructure to help manage the increased remote activity. And even with the pandemic showing signs of slowing, cloud infrastructures will likely be the way of the future. In fact, more than 60% of technology leaders surveyed say they expect increased demand for cloud infrastructure to be permanent.
