Data Is the New Fuel for Innovation. Can Your Business Tap Its Power?

You can’t expect data to fuel innovation if your organization isn’t prepared to use it. To investigate how and why businesses must reengineer themselves to deliver on the promise of data through digital transformation, NetApp teamed with the Wall Street Journal and analyst firm IDC to deliver original research and content targeted at digital transformation.

 

Recent findings from IDC’s global research study showcase the strategies and technologies that businesses are employing to accelerate their digital transformation. The eye-opening results highlight the data-related challenges and corresponding maturity stages of organizations that thrive compared to those that resist transformation.

 

According to the IDC, within the first three years of adoption, data-driven businesses experienced:

  • A two-fold increase in revenue growth and customer satisfaction
  • A three-fold advancement in profits and customer acquisition
  • A six-fold improvement in efficiency

IDC is releasing new research that examines how organizations in healthcare, finance, and manufacturing deal with digital transformation. Tune into the on-demand webcast for results and to hear the discussion.
