Highlights from the Regional Reports

There were regional differences in the level of impact COVID-19 had on Digital Transformation initiatives. EMEA saw the highest levels of deceleration in IT initiatives compared to other regions, while LATAM saw the least. However, one thing that remained true across all regions is that more digitally mature companies continued investing despite the pandemic.

EMEA

    • Almost one-quarter of French IT leaders are looking for help from cloud providers with their number-one pain point: insufficient IT and developer skill sets. They’re also looking for help with security risks and concerns, internal processes and governance, and a culture that discourages experimentation.
    • In German organizations, a lack of leadership buy-in and the burden of legacy systems, alongside a dearth of suitable IT and developer skills, top the list of preoccupations for IT leaders—all scoring more than 30%.
    • British IT leaders are looking to cloud providers for help in shaping business priorities, at 67%, which is more than their European peers (62%). This points to a desire to lean on cloud providers for support in defining the most effective strategic approach to the challenging times ahead.

JAPAC

    • Because of COVID-19, JAPAC IT leaders were more likely than those in other regions to newly introduce or accelerate IT initiatives related to either disaster recovery and business continuity or automation of existing manual processes.
    • 42% of JAPAC respondents said that one of their top pain points was insufficient IT and developer skill sets.
    • Satisfaction rates with the primary cloud vendor are high in the region with 36% of JAPAC respondents were highly satisfied and 54% satisfied.
    • 85% of JAPAC respondents agreed that their cloud platform security is as good or better than on-premises infrastructure.

NORTHAM

    • Nearly half (47%) of U.S. organizations accelerated or launched new initiatives to improve product and service development.
    • 48% Canada’s IT leaders reported legacy systems and technology as a top pain point in 2020 compared to 25% of US respondents.
    • NORTHAM Digital Forwards*—the respondents who say they have fully transformed or are actively implementing digital business strategies—said that security risks are the main barrier to additional innovation, and they want a cloud provider that can address those risks.
    • NORTHAM IT leaders also place a stronger priority on finding a cloud provider that’s capable of big data analysis, compared to the rest of the world.

LATAM

    • Nearly six in 10 (58%) companies in Mexico accelerated or launched new initiatives to improve remote work and collaboration capabilities, higher than the 52% of Brazilian organizations.
    • Mexican organizations report having clear ideas about how to accelerate digital momentum. Virtually all (98%) plan to use cloud-based collaboration and productivity solutions. A strong majority (71%) are considering using public cloud infrastructure services in the next 12 months.
    • 75% of Brazilian companies say sustainability is an important criterion in choosing a cloud provider and, therefore, cloud providers could play a key role as sustainability becomes a higher priority.
