A recent global survey of 900 IT leaders and financial decision-makers revealed surprising challenges they face when it comes to funding and investing in innovation. The results, which were published in a report entitled “IT Leaders Frustrated with Barriers to Innovation and Falling Behind” by llan Oshri, highlights the biggest blocker to innovation is overspending on “keeping the lights on.”1

As organizations face highly-disruptive technologies, particularly Oracle Cloud and SAP S/4HANA, the survey found 77% of the respondents indicated that their firms struggle to find budget for these types of initiatives, 76% cited “lack of board support for significant investment in innovation,” and 74% felt being “locked in to vendor contracts restrict innovation.”

Join Pat Phelan, former Gartner analyst and Rimini Street VP of Market Research, along with Hari Cadadai, GVP, Global Product Marketing and Strategy, for a 30-minute On-Demand webinar and you will walk away understanding:
  • Why companies like Welch’s, a $700 million processing and marketing subsidiary of the National Grape Cooperative, shifted their strategy to IT cost containment in order to reinvest resources and savings into their IT strategy
  • How you can flip the “innovation” switch on, particularly if you are struggling to get line-of-sight on a multi-year roadmap
  • Who Rimini Street is and why over 1500 global enterprises are making third-party support the primary enabler of their innovation strategy

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how to keep business IT innovation moving forward. Cari Jaquet, VP of Marketing at Rimini Street hosts this lively 30-minute discussion.

1The survey, which was conducted by Vanson Bourne, a technology market research firm, and analyzed by llan Oshri, Professor of the Graduate School of Management, University of Auckland Business School, is based on responses from 900 CIOs, IT leaders and financial decision makers from a broad range of industries, located in North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific.
