What is the Future Enterprise?

The pandemic has left North America (and the rest of the world) in a state of flux. While it underscored the strategic role of digital transformation (DX) in determining which organizations will survive the shift to the digital era, it has also highlighted that what we’ve come to know as DX over the past few years will no longer hold.

In a changed world moving toward the Next Normal, digital transformation itself is changing, bringing in a new chapter where organizations and their CEOs are reprioritizing their agendas. The challenge is clear. Winning in the Next Normal means focusing on addressing new customer requirements, developing new capabilities, and building digital infrastructures that support resilient operations and pervasive experiences in the new digital economy. 

This year, IDC is launching the inaugural IDC Future Enterprise North America Awards by redefining DX, aligning its categories and selection criteria to reflect how organizations will successfully bring their businesses into the Future.

The Future Enterprise is IDC's vision for how organizations must organize and invest to participate in increasingly digitally-centric markets.

Mastering Digital Transformation through the Future of X

IDC’s vision for the Future Enterprise is a framework for fostering a digitally-native culture, one that enables new synergies in ecosystems, generates revenue from empathy at scale, and demonstrates an ability to adapt operating models to complex customer requirements—all of which are enabled by an intelligent, empowered, and agile workforce.

Featuring CEOs’ nine new digital agenda items — pivotal characteristics of the Future Enterprise — these are the new benchmarks for what it takes to lead in the next normal, and how organizations must define their X-factor in the new digital economy.

2021 – 2022 as the pre- and post-COVID-19 vaccine year will see major and permanent changes to organizations. It is the year where key digital transformation steps will shape organizations into the future. We look forward to recognizing the North American best in class in each of the Future Enterprise’s digital agendas.
