The study conducted on behalf of global cloud communications provider 8×8 compared the views of mid-level IT managers with senior directors in more than 260 UK businesses. Almost half of IT managers (45%) feel that senior business leaders hold back technology for reasons of ‘self preservation’.

Overall, 62% of IT managers say UK businesses are too cautious when it comes to adopting new technology, such as cloud communications. Just 56% think the senior resources to stay up to date with technology.
