Fujitsu has released its Future Insights Global Digital Transformation Survey Report 2019, which highlights the results of its survey conducted among 900 CxOs and decision-makers at large and mid-sized companies spread across different industries in nine countries, including Australia. With this survey, Fujitsu aims to understand the state of their digital transformation journeys with regard to AI and other advanced technologies, and to clarify how business leaders around the world perceive the concept of "trust", an increasingly urgent theme in recent years. The third iteration of this survey also revealed the six success factors in digital transformation initiatives and the importance of organisational abilities such as leadership. The survey additionally takes an in-depth look at trust toward online data and decisions made by AI or a person. Fujitsu will ultimately draw on these findings to accelerate its work with customers in advancing their digital transformation initiatives to achieve greater trust in business and society.
