“Maturing our cloud-native development capabilities” was the single most frequently listed opportunity for accelerating innovation over the next 12 months, with 63% of decision-makers identifying cloud native development as the skill their organization is most in need of. At the same time, nearly seven in ten IT decision-makers, whose developer teams are using low-code / no-code development tools, report having a faster pace of innovation and the ability to implement new ideas within a few days or a few weeks.
