Jeff Boehm of NuoDB has written about the strategy behind Digital Transformation at different types of companies. He writes, “Customer expectations are rapidly evolving due to the breakneck speed of innovation. Technology fosters and enables a culture of instant access (and immediate gratification), constant evolution and iteration, subscription pricing models, and targeted efficiencies.   While start-ups often thrive in such an environment, more established software organizations often need to rethink their culture, their strategy, and their infrastructure to meet customers’ elevated expectations. It’s no wonder that “digital transformation” has become the buzzword of the day.”

Boehm goes on, “In an effort to understand how software organizations compared to and differed from their enterprise peers in motivations, implementations, timing, and requirements we commissioned independent research firm Qualtrics to execute a survey among nearly 100 companies that make either business or consumer software and 167 respondents from other industries. All respondents were from organizations with more than 100 employees. Based on the results, organizations of all kinds are actively embracing digital transformation and data center modernization technologies. Even containers and microservices are seeing expected adoption rates of more than 70% in the next 12 months. What was most interesting however, were the reasons for increased adoption.”

He adds, “We’ve highlighted our key findings below in a new infographic to emphasize the differences between software and enterprise companies as they navigate the digital transformation and prioritize strategic technology initiatives.   One thing is clear — organizations know customer trends can change quickly and that creating an environment where the business can react swiftly to changing market conditions is key to not just success, but survival.   To read the report in its entirety, visit http://go.nuodb.com/2016-database-report.html.”
