2016 Enterprise Solutions Study

The objective of our comprehensive 2016 Enterprise Solutions Study is to investigate the goals and challenges, preferences and status of the software used to run your business, while benchmarking performance in the context of the business benefits implementation brings. The data offers valuable insight and information both unique to this year and as a progression from our 2011 through 2015 surveys, including extensive study of cloud and software as a service (SaaS). This year we also dive deeper into performance management (against plan) and digital preparedness, including the Internet of Things (IoT) and the role of wearable devices.

If you would like to learn more about how to leverage this data to your advantage, please contact us.
