Singapore Lags Global Index in Readiness for Digital Transformation

Monday, September 12th, 2022

Dell research suggests that Singapore and the APJ lags the world in its “Breakthrough Benchmark” – a measure of the readiness for digital transformation.

Dell Technologies’ research from over 40 countries details how despite two years of accelerated digital transformation, only 5% of the Singapore workforce has an appetite for digital change.

I was looking through a study report from Dell on digital transformation and couldn’t help but notice that the survey results seem to indicate that Singapore and APJ seems to lag the global index for its “Breakthrough Benchmark”.

The survey of 10,500 respondents from around the world measured participants’ readiness for technological change and placed them in four benchmark groups:

  1. Sprint: Traiblazers ready to chase after innovation and technological change.
  2. Steady: Poised to adopt technological change selected by others.
  3. Slow: More inclined to hold back and observe / deliberate rather than take action.
  4. Still: Take a pessimistic view of innovation based on perceived risk. Tend to anticipate problems and resist proposed technology innovations based on perceived risk.

Respondents in the “Sprint”and “Steady” groups tend to be more confident that they or their organisation will advance in areas of technology adoption, while respondents in the “Slow” and “Still” groups are more likely to see the potential risks involved and retreat.
