Symphony in a Digital-First Key

The pandemic has nudged digital transformations (DX) toward a digital-first state.

Pre-COVID, enterprises and governments worldwide were expected to mount US$2.1 trillion in DX spending between 2020 and 2023. Now, investment commitments are forecast to reach US$2.8 trillion between 2022 and 2025.

Clearly, putting in place digital tools to compete in a digital-first world is a priority. Businesses must play to a new tune in this digital-first world – a symphony that brings together the nine different keys.

It is evidenced in how future-forward enterprises interconnect the pillars of remastering, recreation, and remixing — like music’s essentials of melody, harmony, and rhythm — in everything from operations to partnerships to customer engagements. The new symphony that the Future Enterprise plays will be in a digital-first key. The sounds of which appeal to audiences in any technology space.

Come join the new symphony at IDC’s DX Summit & Future Enterprise Awards 2022.

Nine Keys to Digital-first Success

2022 heralds a new front, and organizations must level up from the digital transformation practices of 2021 to digital-first priorities in 2022.

In the endemic phase, one organization will thrive, not just survive: the Future Enterprise. IDC highlights nine digital keys for organizations to become that Future Enterprise.

Be ready to play the world's best tune of Future Enterprise with these nine digital keys.
