As a result, the role of IT has evolved to become more aligned with business objectives, breaking old IT habits. New age IT players are expected to deliver efficient adaptation in favor of the promise of existing and emerging technologies such as blockchain, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and more. Our latest Global Trend Report – IT Deep Dive, aims to reveal more significant insights and uncover how IT leaders are tackling the connected and data-centric ecosystem.

The following are the report key takeaways:

More CIOs and IT practitioners are turning to RPA that is fast leading the way for businesses to: reduce costly manual processes, eliminate tedious tasks, automate high volume processes and manage rule-based tasks.
Virtual Assistants and Intelligent Agents are becoming the preferred choices and are already turning heads of 45% of surveyed respondents.
