Security, above everything else, was consistently top of mind across all funding areas. IT security is by far the most common overall funding priority for 44% of respondents moving into 2023.

Digital transformation

While security reigns supreme as the most important concern, innovation remains a crucial directive and criteria for transformation success.

Training and upskilling

The talent and skills gap is widespread. A key contingency for digital transformation success is hiring or re-skilling talent gaps. As such, it remains the top digital transformation barrier for many.
