F5 networks report finds app economies are fuelling EMEA’s digital transformation
The company's 2020 State of Application Services report found that EMEA organisations remain optimistic on digital transformation
New research from F5 networks find that EMEA organizations are increasingly being motivated towards digital transformation thanks to a developing app economy in the Middle East.
The company’s State of Application Services surveyed EMEA organizations and revealed that nearly 91% of these companies have digital transformation plans in place. In other regions, digital transformation adoption was 84% in the USA and 82% in the Asian pacific region.
“Digital transformation is a profound opportunity to change business as usual,” added Lori MacVittie, Principal Technical Evangelist, Office of the CTO at F5 Networks.
“Crucially, it is driving the growth of application portfolios and changing the way in which they are developed, delivered, integrated, and ultimately even consumed. That also means changes in the way they are secured, scaled, and operated.”
F5 networks recommends that organisations optimise their digital transformation plans while in tandem focusing on application based services, and secure and scale IT and business processes.
“We’re starting to see EMEA organisations moving beyond the first phase of digital transformation business process automation and scaling their digital footprint with cloud, automation, and containers,” added MacVittie.
“New ecosystems are being created and API call volumes are skyrocketing. Moving forward, those able harness and react to application and API data will be rewarded with significant business value.”
