After interviewing more than 5,000 directors in 36 global economies – 200 in Spain – the study found that 82% of eurozone business executives see an opportunity in IT developments. Spain was the European economy with the most positive outlook, ahead of Italy (90%), Germany (81%) and France (67%).
Specifically, 77% of Spanish companies that have a positive view of the digital transformation believe that its main benefit is improving efficiency and cutting costs. This factor was also considered the biggest benefit in the eurozone average, although with 13 percent less support.
