Senior management in over half of Irish companies recognise the importance of technology in sparking innovation, according to a survey.

The survey revealed that 58 percent of Irish senior managers appreciate the link between bringing new or better services or products to market and the implementation of new technology. This compares with just 38 percent of English companies and 17 percent of Scottish companies. Undertaken by enterprise software vendor, Oracle, the survey also revealed that a quarter of Irish companies viewed inability to change as being the single biggest threat to their business.
