Rackspace Technology has announced the results of a global survey revealing that 2020 drove a large-scale push for application modernisation.
According to the survey, The State of Application Modernisation, 71% of respondents said at least one out of four applications are undergoing active modernisation, and 24% said more than half of all their applications are underdoing modernisation. Most organisations have already paid a price for dragging their feet, over half of respondents said delaying application modernisation has resulted in failures to meet compliance requirements (56%) and/or to scale critical services when required (51%).
Jeff DeVerter, Chief Technology Evangelist, Rackspace Technology, said: “The results paint a clear and consistent picture. Organisations of all sizes and across all industries have firmly bought into Digital Transformation and are actively pursuing strategies of continuous application modernisation. In fact, many have already experienced direct consequences from moving too slowly – which may explain why nine out of 10 organisations say their appreciation for the business value of applications has increased.”
The global survey included 1400 plus respondents in IT and non-IT business units, from companies with US$300 million annual earnings and above, including both decision-makers and application users.Click below to share this article
