In a report revealing that emerging markets are the most digitally mature, Turkey comes first place in EMEA region in terms of digital maturity.
Despite the relentless pace of disruption, the latest Dell Technologies Digital Transformation (DT) Index shows many businesses’ digital transformation programs are still in their infancy. This is evidenced by the 78% of business leaders both in Turkey and the world who admit digital transformation should be more widespread throughout their organization.
Dell Technologies, in collaboration with Intel and Vanson Bourne, surveyed 4,600 business leaders (director to C-suite) from mid- to large-sized companies across the globe to score their organizations’ transformation efforts. The study revealed that emerging markets are the most digitally mature, with India, Brazil and Thailand topping the global ranking. In contrast, developed markets are slipping behind: Japan, Denmark and France received the lowest digital maturity scores.
Turkey come first place in front of South Africa and Portugal in EMEA region. What’s more, emerging markets are more confident in their ability to “disrupt rather than be disrupted” (53%), compared to just 40% in developed nations. Accordingly, organizations in Turkey are investing in cybersecurity (70%), IoT tech (52%), aritificial intelligience (44%) and compute-centric approach (59%) as new solutions and innovations to enable digital business over the next 1-3 years. Within the scope ofi give plans, 93% of business leaders in Turkey are decisive to use emerging tech to predict customer demands and manage resources, while EMEA’s average is 74% and the global average is 77%.
The DT Index II builds on the firs ever DT Index launched in 2016. The two-year comparison highlights that progress has been slow, with organizations struggling to keep up with the blistering pace of change. While the percentage of Digital Adopters has increased, there’s been no progress at the top. Almost four in 10 (39%) businesses are still spread across the two least digitally mature groups on the benchmark (Digital Laggards and Digital Followers). “In the near future, every organization will need to be a digital organization, but our research indicates that the majority still have a long way to go,” says Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies. “Organizations need to modernize their technology to participate in the unprecedented opportunity of digital transformation. The time to act is now.”
