Becoming an Agent of Transformation in 2022
Against this backdrop (Cisco AppDynamics first report was published in 2018), this report revisits the very idea of what it means to be an Agent of Transformation in 2022 - what it takes to reach the summit of the IT profession, how technologists can accelerate their own journey and why it still matters so much.
The research explores how technologists have reacted and adapted to the monumental changes they've experienced over the last four years and what they've learnt along the way. It examines how the skills, qualities and resources required to become an Agent of Transformation have evolved during the pandemic and will continue to change in a cloud-native future. And it asks what we can learn from these elite professionals that are re-defining the role and contribution of technologists today.
AppDynamics has undertaken comprehensive global research, from board-level directors and CIOs, through to senior and mid-level IT management. Interviews with 1,150 IT professionals in organizations with a turnover of at least $500m (with the exception of Colombia, where organizations with a turnover of at least $100m were included in the sample). All research was conducted by Insight Avenue in April and May 2022
