Digital transformation (DX) is at the center of modern organizational strategies. Direct investment is expected to be over $9.0 trillion across hardware software and services as organizations and entire industries continue to transform themselves to successfully compete in the digital economy.
This Worldwide Digital Business Strategies program looks at how companies are transforming decision making with technology with speed, scale, and agility, creating sustainable performance excellence in the digital economy along with where companies are challenged to become digitally capable at scale.
IDC's globally recognized industry-leading DX taxonomies provide structured and demonstrable guidance for 22 distinct industry and government verticals, highlighting how to create and enable digital transformation success, including the critical operating competencies required for effectively competing in the digital economy through a four-tiered model. These industries are organized by an overarching set of digital missions, which are supported through a comprehensive set of strategic priorities, enabled through several hundred programmatic efforts, and realized through over 1,000 functional and business outcome oriented–specific, project-level use cases (business and IT-enabled digital projects).
The Worldwide Digital Business Strategies program benchmarks the maturity of enterprise transformation efforts, identifies organizational impact, provides guidance on building new capabilities, and prioritizes investment options. This program is also fully supported and aligned by the IDC Digital Business Spending Guide, enabling quantitative analysis of investment by the industry, technology, and use case taxonomy framework.
