Almost two thirds (60 per cent) of UK busi­ness lead­ers believe the man­age­ment of tech­no­logy dis­rup­tion is shift­ing away from IT to oth­er depart­ments, as lines of busi­ness take charge of tech­no­logy-led innov­a­tion in UK organ­isa­tions, accord­ing to new research from VMware, a cloud ser­vice pro­vider.

The research among 200 IT decision makers and heads of lines of busi­ness finds that this decent­ral­isa­tion of IT is deliv­er­ing real busi­ness bene­fits: the abil­ity to launch new products and ser­vices to mar­ket with great­er speed (56 per cent), giv­ing the busi­ness more free­dom to drive innov­a­tion (63 per cent) and increas­ing respons­ive­ness to mar­ket con­di­tions (59 per cent).
