IDC’s “Future of X” Practices
Defining Future Enterprise Strategies by Connecting Technology to Business Outcomes
The Rise of the Digital Economy and the New CEO Agenda
The digital economy is quickly advancing, and recent pandemic disruption has only served to further increase the urgency of addressing digital transformation requirements across all businesses and industries.
Soon, most CEOs will be running companies that look more digital than physical. And, that means their plans are built around new, reprioritized agendas with key areas of focus that include:
- Addressing new customer requirements
- Developing new capabilities
- Building new, cloud-centric digital IT infrastructures that support resilient operations and pervasive experiences
Technology suppliers must also adapt as they position their solutions and work with customers to help address these new priorities and buying requirements.
