Overview Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Leaders in enterprise technology were growing 2x faster than Laggards. In our latest research, we found that Leaders have doubled down on their tech investments and are now growing 5x faster than Laggards. We also discovered a group of “Leapfroggers” who are compressing digital transformation, growing 4x faster than Laggards and closing the gap with Leaders in 3 strategic steps.

Among the “Others” there is a group of organizations—18% of the entire sample—that has been able to break previous performance barriers—the Leapfroggers.
