  2. Executives were least concerned about using digital innovation to launch new business models and build ecosystem platforms.

  3. Most executives reported that across their highest-priority digital investments, executing those goals required comprehensive or advanced cloud capabilities, according to the report.

  4. Executives ranked the most important hybrid or multicloud capabilities as "important" or "extremely important." Of those capabilities, 85 percent said cloud operation across all environments to be managed from a single location is in one of those two categories, 81 percent selected disaster recovery.
