The study from CenturyLink indicates that hybrid IT is the pervasive IT infrastructure model for organisations in Asia Pacific, including Japan (APJ).

“Digital disruption is changing the way we approach business today globally. In particular, IT departments are experiencing tremendous change as organisations turn IT into a driving force for all aspects of the business, including the customer experience.” said Gery Messer, managing director, Asia Pacific, CenturyLink.

This as a vast majority are taking transformative steps to match workloads to their best execution venue across a blend of in-house and third-party services.

According to the CenturyLink Asia Pacific Hybrid IT Readiness Report 2016, 73 percent of organisations are aware of the hybrid IT deployment model.

75 percent of them already outsource at least one or more data center, network, security or applications services to third-party managed service providers.

In addition, 84 percent of organisations cite security as the key driver to consider managed service providers.

“As more organisations turn to a blend of in-house and third-party IT services, it is important for leaders to address concerns on security. They need to carefully assess their technology partners to ensure that security capabilities are well embedded in all of their offerings – managed hosting, managed services, network solutions, colocation and cloud. Only then will they be able to help IT transform into a secure hub for innovation,” elaborated Messer.

In Singapore, 74 percent of Millennials say that they plan to be full time entrepreneurs during the next 10 years. The global percentage is only at 50 percent.

Fueled by technology that has made entrepreneurship easier than ever, a strong desire for autonomy, and a willingness to try establishing a business again in the event of failure, the number of professionals looking to create their own business or be self-employed has spiked, according to a new global survey commissioned by GoDaddy.

32 percent of Millennials surveyed in Singapore started their current business while they were still in school. That makes them sixteen times more likely to pursue entrepreneurship as a career than their Gen X counterparts did while still pursuing their studies.

Infographic: Are businesses really digitally transforming or living in digital denial?

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Progress survey finds businesses have under two years to make digital inroads before suffering financial and competitive losses.

“Digital disruption is now part of our daily existence as it has changed how we live, communicate and work. Yet, many organisations in Singapore continue to deny that digital technologies have already radically transformed the business landscape and struggle to embark on the transformation journey, consequently risking their survival,” said Benjamin Wong, Managing Director, Asia, Progress.

“Digital disruption is now part of our daily existence as it has changed how we live, communicate and work. Yet, many organisations in Singapore continue to deny that digital technologies have already radically transformed the business landscape and struggle to embark on the transformation journey, consequently risking their survival,” said Benjamin Wong, Managing Director, Asia, Progress.

Progress today announced the results of its recent global survey, “Are Businesses Really Digitally Transforming or Living in Digital Denial?”.

While most businesses in Singapore and other markets around the world recognise the inherent benefits of “going digital,” the majority of respondents are hitting roadblocks—lack of internal alignment, lack of adequate skills and plenty of cultural resistance.

“This survey brings to light the reality of today’s digital transformation challenges. By providing business leaders with tangible data points, we hope they will better understand the key aspects to focus on in order to succeed in the changing business landscape,” added Wong.

“This survey brings to light the reality of today’s digital transformation challenges. By providing business leaders with tangible data points, we hope they will better understand the key aspects to focus on in order to succeed in the changing business landscape,” added Wong.

Coupled with technology constraints and an overall inability to execute, the result is a growing state of anxiety about embarking on digital transformation, with some fearing it may already be too late.

The survey, conducted in Q1 2016 by Loudhouse, the specialist research division of Octopus Group, aimed to better understand how business leaders view digital transformation and learn their plans to address its challenges.

Respondents included individuals from 10 countries including Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States.

Survey respondents included a mix of more than 700 global C-Level/VP decision makers; heads of marketing, digital and IT; as well as developers, IT architects, directors, engineers and line of business managers.

Mobility, APIs and Business Enablement are sparking new attitudes towards security and are driving an increase in investment in these areas.

“As more organisations understand the impact of the application economy in the increasingly connected Asia Pacific & Japan business landscape, security is moving from being a back-room afterthought to being a core business function. In the world of ever-increasing connected devices, organisations will leverage security to deliver better customer experience and contribute to positive business outcomes,” said Kenneth Arredondo, president & general manager, Asia Pacific & Japan, CA Technologies.

Protection is still the main driver for security, but a new CA Technologies study reveals that Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ) organisations are approaching security from new perspectives, recognising its potential to deliver frictionless and positive customer experience and contribute to business growth in the increasingly competitive application economy.

The study is titled “8 Steps to Modernize Security for the Application Economy” and is sponsored by CA Technologies.

The study shows how mobility, APIs and business growth have brought a balanced view of control and enablement to security, leading to an increase in investment by APJ organisations.

Security solutions are therefore more necessary than ever, as verified by the results of the poll revealing that risky behavior by Internet users was generating new attack opportunities for cyber criminals.

“Consumers today are very reliant on their devices, with an average individual owning around five digital devices each. Yet, they often forget that having more devices also increases their exposure to cyberattacks,” said Terrence Tang, Senior Director of Consumer Business, Asia Pacific, Trend Micro.
