More UK businesses focus on digital transformation - study

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 15:09 CET | News

The number of UK businesses with formal digital transformation strategies has more than doubled from 27 percent in 2016 to 63 percent, according to the latest survey by Daisy Group. Businesses in the IT (85%) and finance (82%) sectors are leading the way, compared to just over half (56%) of retail businesses with a digital transformation plan. 

The study shows that half (53%) of public sector organisations have not yet implemented a formal digital strategy, with smaller businesses lagging their larger counterparts. Cost savings and efficiencies (69%) remain the drivers for digital transformation, although one third of businesses are using digital technologies to develop new business models.
