According to studies presented at the SAP Executive Summit, 86% of Chief Executives consider digital transformation a necessity, but only 54% think they should have a front-line role in its planning and implementation.
On March 16th, 2017, SAP Italia presented its report, “Italian CEOs and the 4.0 Revolution. Know it and Guide it”, undertaken in collaboration with The European House – Ambrosetti.
The study—unveiled during the SAP Executive Summit, the high-level event that each year brings together in Cernobbio the top managers of leading Italian companies and representatives of government and institutions—involved key business leaders from Italian productive system with the goal of examining how the fourth industrial revolution is being taken on by Italian businesses.
The report revealed that companies are aware that they should be activating this process, but it also highlighted the difficulty they are having in providing concrete support through welcoming this transformation at all levels and in all areas of their individual companies.
