This IDC study focuses on European enterprises' IT and business priorities for 2015 and beyond. It presents the results of a recent IDC survey of 1,451 Western European IT decision makers and influencers from small, midsize, and large enterprises about their spending plans, software procurement processes, cloud spending, and organizational transformation strategies for 2015. The survey showed that the digital transformation wave in Europe is real and enterprises are making radical changes to their organizational and operating models (e.g., hiring digital transformation teams), making it one of the top business priorities and blurring the boundaries between IT and the line of business (LOB). They are driving transformation both internally and externally.
"When almost 60% of respondents say that digital transformation is a strategic priority over the coming 12 months, it is a clear sign that European organizations are transforming existing business practices. This wave of change represents a major opportunity for software and services vendors," said Bo Lykkegaard, associate vice president, IDC European Enterprise Applications
