Continuous Intelligence Moves from Hype to Reality in the C-Suite According to New Report from Sumo Logic

Sumo Logic, a leader in continuous intelligence, today announced new data highlighting increasing demand for a new category of software called continuous intelligence among C-level executives. Key industry trends - including accelerated cloud migration, the rising importance of rapid data insights and the emergence of DevSecOps - are converging to drive huge demand for continuous intelligence. Continuous intelligence allows organizations to more rapidly deliver reliable applications and digital services, protect against modern security threats, and consistently optimize their business processes in real time. This empowers employees across all lines of business, development, IT and security teams with the data and insights needed to address the technology and collaboration challenges required for modern business.

The report, conducted by King Brown Partners, found that in today's ever-changing business landscape, those that operate using a software-driven model will be the most successful. These businesses recognize the power of transforming enormous volumes of data generated by digital operations into real-time insights that propel further success. The ability to do this in real-time, all the time, across multiple functional disciplines, lies at the heart of continuous intelligence.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a business discontinuity in which digital transformation has gone from evolution to explosion overnight--doubling, tripling and quadrupling cloud application and infrastructure workloads," said Bruno Kurtic, founding VP of strategy and solutions. "As these digital businesses and services scale to meet demand, the need to effectively monitor, troubleshoot and secure these services has never been more dependent on the need to collect, index and analyze all data in real-time to speed response, improve services and remain agile under these conditions to drive better outcomes. Our Continuous Intelligence Platform enables organizations to derive actionable insights by more effectively enabling collaboration across DevSecOps teams in order to build, manage and secure modern digital services. For Sumo Logic, this is what we mean by continuous intelligence, and we're not surprised to see its relevance growing among operations, security and business leaders."

Key Findings
The global report included the insights from 765 professionals with cloud-migration leadership responsibilities. Some of the key findings include:

  • Eighty-eight percent of C-suite executives surveyed said they believe their company will benefit from continuous intelligence
  • Seventy-four percent believe continuous intelligence will help drive companies' speed and agility
  • Seventy-six percent indicated they are likely to employ continuous intelligence within the next 12 months
  • Sixty-two percent believe continuous intelligence is a new approach to data that many companies will need to embrace as they become more software-driven to drive revenue.

Gartner, the world's leading research and advisory company cites that, "organizations have long sought real-time intelligence, and systems are available to do this for a limited set of tasks. Now it is finally practical to implement these systems - what Gartner calls continuous intelligence - on a much broader scale because of the cloud, advances in streaming software and growth data from sensors in the Internet of Things (IoT). By 2022, more than half of major new business systems will incorporate continuous intelligence that uses real-time context data to improve decisions."
