IDC Insights Briefing 2020

The Future Enterprise in the Next Normal

August 5, 2020


 Virtual Briefing with IDC Insights Global Industry Teams


Industries around the world are being forced to change! The impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent changes to the ways people live, learn, work and play has driven an unprecedented change in how they do business - from managing the supply chain to becoming part of an ecosystem, from focusing on efficiencies of operations to meeting customer requirements, and from simple customer segmentation to customer empathy.

Come and listen to IDC Insights global industry teams as they discuss how their research plans are supporting clients in their transition to the Future Enterprise, providing guidance by industry verticals - manufacturing, retail, energy, health, and financial along with a perspective of how different regions - the US, EMEA, and Asia/Pacific - are adapting to the next normal.

The session will begin with an overview of IDC’s view on the Future Enterprise, and the key areas that will facilitate the change followed by industry breakouts where representatives from across the globe will share how the industry is changing, and their research plans to enable the change.

Join us for one keynote session and 5 vertical breakouts sessions.
