DX Roadmap

Create a DX Digital Roadmap that is Modular, Scalable, and Extensible

Favor Long-term Strategy and Vision over Short-Term Tactical

One of the priorities for true digital transformation lies in the right technology roadmap. Roadmaps focused on achieving short-term goals are often not durable or flexible enough for the journey ahead. The development of a digital roadmap should start by envisioning how your industry may transform in coming years. The roadmap needs to address how your organization will get to that future through use cases to focus efforts.

Prioritize Use Cases

It's critical for an organization to build a roadmap that is wider than individual projects. IDC recommends building a roadmap with use cases layered into horizons, allowing for modularity and scalability. The roadmap will move from the very executable in Horizon 1 to more abstract in Horizon 3, where technology may not yet be feasible for full implementation.

"Have the vision for the full cake,
but build the cake in slices and layers."
