Digital transformation rests on the shoulders of the C-suite, Vault poll shows
Sydney, Australia –– 16 August, 2018 – Vault, a leading Australian ASD certified cloud provider, today released the results of its Digital Transformation Savviness poll conducted during the 12th Annual Technology in Government Australia event held in Canberra earlier this month. The results indicate that while the Australian government’s digital transformation strategy is satisfactory, there is still room for improvement (40%). Only seven percent of respondents believe the government is making significant strides on their digital transformation journey.
Given that the term digital transformation has been broadly used in the technology and business vernacular, Vault conducted the poll to better understand what digital transformation means to senior executives and to identify the key barriers and considerations regarding the storing of confidential information in the cloud.
The definition of digital transformation and who should be responsible to lead the initiative
The poll found that over 38 percent of respondents indicated that digital transformation can be defined as automating repetitive tasks to reduce efforts and errors and enhancing customer experience (37%).
When it comes to leading the digital transformation charge, respondents believe that CTOs (32%) and CEOs (31%) should be responsible overall. Only 9 percent of respondents said that CIOs should be spearheading all digital transformation initiatives.
Plans and considerations around data
Despite the public and private sector’s push for organisations to adopt a cloud-first or even a cloud-only strategy, the poll found that just 22 percent of respondents have all their workloads on the cloud with approximately 47 percent indicating that some of its workloads are on the cloud and the rest on premise. Just 14 percent have their workloads on premise only.
An astounding 68 percent of respondents have cited that when it comes to storing confidential information, security of the cloud is the most important consideration followed by sovereignty.
While 61 percent of respondents say that their organisation is ultimately responsible for data held in the cloud, 41 percent indicate that the lack of IT knowledge and skills to use cloud services followed by budget limitations to migrate to the cloud pose as some of the challenges they are faced with. “The term digital transformation is the ability to radically change every facet of the business through the use of technology. Rather than focusing on a single aspect of the business, digital transformation intrinsically links all offline and online processes together to enhance the customer experience and solves problems,” said Rupert Taylor-Price, Founder and CEO of Vault.
“Access to secure, sovereign and reliable cloud is integral to digital transformation because it offers organisations and agencies the security, speed and scale to drive innovation. However, without the right skills available, Australia will lag behind in its quest to become an innovation nation.” The poll of 143 respondents from the public (30%) and private sector (70%) were primarily mid to senior management working in the technology industry (70%).

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
