The overall research objective is to measure the current use and future decision making behavior toward information technology (IT) in North America, specifically: Enterprise Mobility Management, eCommerce/mCommerce, Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC), Infrastructure and Data Centers, Big Data and Analytics, Omnichannel Marketing, Customer Experience Management, Cyber Security, Internet of Things, Enterprise Content and Business Processes Management, Fintech, and API/CPaaS (Application Programming Interface/Communications Platforms as a Service) Strategy.

This research aims to:

  • Understand the IT-related challenges organizations face today
  • Monitor the status of digital transformation including newer solutions such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), and mCommerce

The top IT investment drivers include improving productivity (45%), reducing operational costs (38%), and customer experience (31%). Improving digital presence was new on the list of options this year and came in fourth place at 29%.

About 60% of respondents in North America plan to increase their IT budgets, with an average increase of 29%.
