This IDC FutureScape presents the IDC Energy Insights team's assessment for 2015 of the 10 "Decision Imperatives" that make up the framework for IT and line-of-business decision makers' and influencers' planning and execution of technology-related initiatives in the years ahead. The team evaluated the global utilities ecosystem to identify critical political, economic, social, technology, environmental, legal, and business developments that drive the 10 most important decision imperatives facing the industry's IT and LOB technology buyers and influencers.
"Over the last few years, energy demand has been largely redistributed globally, shifting considerably toward emerging economies," said Roberta Bigliani, associate vice president, head of EMEA, IDC Energy Insights. "In more mature economies the future outlook for utilities appears challenging and full of uncertainties. However, it will present opportunities for those agile and capable enough to adapt to variable environments to quickly deploy or collaborate with others and implement solutions that may fall outside the traditional scope of a utility. Utilities that succeed in this energy transition will have innovation, speed, and flexibility in their DNA."
