Research Shows One Third Of Irish Companies Have No Digital Strategy

Almost one third of Irish companies have no digital strategy, according to a recent report entitled ‘Digitalisation: Unlocking the Potential’ launched by Siemens.

Key findings within the report showed that when it comes to implementing technologies, over half are still in the initial/planning phase.

It also showed that while 43% have defined digital strategies for portions of their business, less than one third has such a strategy for the company as a whole.

"It’s essential that Irish companies position themselves to take advantage of the benefits of Digitalisation. If we are not doing it in Ireland, somebody somewhere is, which is a threat to the sustainability of Irish business.” Gary O’Callaghan, CEO, Siemens Ireland said.

The new report explores the current level of digital adoption among Irish companies across all sectors with a focus on Ireland’s food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and electrical and electronics industries.

It also showed, that 40% are confident their company has the skills required to evaluate emerging technology.
