Digital transformation has become a necessary process for most large enterprises. Many who haven't embraced digital transformation have paid the consequences — they are ill-equipped to compete with more agile organizations, and they have become less relevant.

The following are some highlights from a new digital transformation study developed by Futurum Research, commissioned by Zenoss, entitled Digital Transformation - 9 Key Insights:

■ 48 percent of organizations have their digital transformation strategies being led by the CEO.

■ 71 percent described digital transformation as being at the center of all business decisions.

■ 65 percent are adopting agile development tools to accelerate speed to market and improve business agility.

■ 37 percent cite blind spots in IT infrastructure as their top concern when contemplating digital transformation initiatives.

■ 33 percent cite their ability to scale monitoring as the top concern

"Digital transformation is an ongoing process of leveraging digital technologies to build flexibility, agility and adaptability into business processes," said Daniel Newman, founder and principal analyst at Futurum.

"Business agility is one of the greatest traits common to modern, successful businesses," said Brian Wilson, Chief Customer Officer at Zenoss. "This research reinforces the need for robust, scalable solutions that make digital transformation possible."

The report is the result of a survey of 500 executives and IT professionals.
