Dublin, October 04, 2016

Research conducted by Fujitsu Ireland and TechPro has found that digital transformation and the increasing application of digital technologies is of growing importance to Irish businesses. 95% of the IT professional surveyed identified digital transformation as important or very important to their business.

The research of 150 IT professionals also showed that the top three security concerns facing IT professionals is data loss (72%), crypto-attack (64%) and malware (61%).  Nearly a third of those surveyed (31%) also listed inadvertent staff errors as an ongoing concern.

The rise of employee mobility and the issue of work life balance also featured in the research, with the majority of respondents reporting that over a third of their workforce now require mobile access to work systems on two or more devices. Security and device management (74%) were identified as the main challenges facing IT professionals when introducing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model to an organisation or business.

Commenting on the research results, Tony O'Malley CEO Fujitsu Ireland commented;
“The research results provide us with an interesting insight in to the main strategic and day-to-day issues facing IT professionals. To see such an emphasis on digital transformation within Irish businesses is reflective of what we at Fujitsu are witnessing at a global level. Today private and public sector organisations across the world are investing heavily in digital in order to empower users, drive productivity, engage customers, better serve citizens and deploy new business models.”

“Digital transformation means different things to different people but fundamentally it looks to integrate new front end experiences of technology users with the necessary processes and information at a core level. IT professionals play a pivotal role within this process as their work affects all areas and levels of an organisation.”
