Employees waste 54 minutes per day as IT systems keep businesses in the slow lane

Andrew Sadauskas /

Around 35% of Australian workers complain they are hindered at work by issues with legacy IT systems, despite Australian businesses spending $44 billion per year on IT, according to the latest instalment of The EY Australian Productivity Pulse.

Overall, the figures show 70% of workers say they would be more productive if they had “faster access to more accurate data and analytics allowing them to make better business decisions”. In contrast, just 6% of employees say they have satisfactory access to data and analytics.
