Oracle has released a new study that says 64 percent of employees at large global companies think their organizations are agile in their approach to new business opportunities.
Oracle said Thursday it polled 2,263 employees for the Oracle Cloud Agility study and found that at least 80 percent of respondents said the ability of their companies to quickly develop and introduce new applications plays an important role in their organizations’ success.
According to the survey, nearly 30 percent of respondents said they do not have enough knowledge about Platform-as-a-Service and its potential benefits to an enterprise, such as the ability to manage workloads in various cloud environments.
“Businesses clearly know agility holds the key to their success, but there is an awareness gap around exactly how this agility can be realized through the right technology investments,” said Robert Shimp, group vice president at Oracle.
The report also revealed that 27 percent of global respondents consider the ability of competing firms to rapidly develop and unveil innovative platforms and services as a major threat.
