Opening Keynote: The CIO’s and IT Team’s role in Digital Resiliency and the Digital First Economy

Richard Villars
Group Vice President, Worldwide Research, IDC Worldwide

As organizations navigated the Covid Pandemic, resiliency became a priority, but traditional approaches to business continuity and IT availability, did not enable companies to effectively operate in the new digital environment.

Leading companies recognized that their prior investments in transformative technologies such as Cloud, digital workspaces, and DevOps allowed them to adapt more quickly to changing personal and business conditions.

This digital adaptability put them in a better place to accelerate investments in digitally transformative capabilities that are critical to success in the new Digital First economy.

They are focused on becoming Digitally Resilient based on the premise that the quicker one adapts, the sooner one can accelerate.

Achieving Digital Resiliency requires the adoption of a framework that stretches across the enterprise including business leadership, operations, brand/reputation, customer experience, workforce, and finance.

Based on the need to deliver Digital Resiliency across this entire business framework, CIO and the their teams must focus their investments and skills in 5 key technology areas: Trust, Cloud, Software, Edge and Automation

While 36% of the companies weren’t equipped to handle the COVID crises last year, over 40% of the companies have accelerated their move to cloud at the advent of the pandemic.

They are in the quest for agility to meet both higher workload or cut way back down to contain costs. With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, companies are dealing with a business environment where customer preferences are starkly different from the pre-COVID-19 workspace —  enhanced digital-first or digital-only experiences, and reconfigured production and supply lines are now the norm.
