This IDC Survey details the results of a survey of end users to understand the impact that digital transformation (DX) will have on their organizations. The primary goal of the survey was to uncover the DX opportunities and challenges that this transformation could have on infrastructure requirements over the next 24 months. The secondary goal was to understand the impact DX opportunities will have on the IT organization, with a focus on the skills requirements of infrastructure operations professionals. The data comes from a web survey (completed in January 2018) of 400 IT decision makers. There was broad representation of small (50–249), midmarket (250–999), and large enterprise (1,000+) organizations in the survey sample. Respondents were required to be familiar with their organization's cloud computing infrastructure and applications, have familiarity with their organization's IT strategy and future technology investments, and have knowledge, influence, or authority over IT investment decisions.
