Stephen Miles, CA Technologies' Asia Pacific & Japan chief technology officer, said the study looked at how businesses were surviving disruption, leading change and winning in the current application economy.
"In today's application economy, digital transformation has become pervasive in every aspect of business," Miles said. "Across Asia Pacific and Japan, organisations are increasingly leveraging modern technology and communications to transform one or more key aspects of the business to achieve a state of digital readiness."
"Applications are becoming the primary modes for consumers to connect with businesses," he said. "With a high device penetration rate and rising smartphone subscriptions, the region is well-poised to leverage the application economy."
