- More companies are committed to the digital transformation initiative in 2021. Nearly half of the services we have decided on in Indonesia in 2021 say that their firm is actively engaged in digital transformation. Although it will increase from 43% in 2020, it is less than the intention they announced in our 2020 survey. When we ask planners about preventing them from implementing their transformation in 2021, they often cite lack of non-technical skills (35%), technology strategies (33%) and data problems (32%).

This is a positive indication that some companies have gone to the planning stage We can expect similar numbers to move from plan to implementation.
