IDC Summit

Harnessing The Forces of Change
To Reshape The Enterprise

DIGITAL SUMMIT | Slovakia | September 23, 2020

Overview

The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated change. For IT and digital transformation projects, what would have taken months has taken weeks or even days. Some enterprises passed end-of-year digital milestones in May.

Slovak CIOs are now asking: "What next?"

  • How can they maintain the new pace?
  • How can they keep elevated productivity while avoiding burnout?
  • When it comes to big issues such as volatile customer demand, IT and operational agility, and adapting to the "new normal" of work arrangements, which of the new practices should be kept in place?
  • What changes are needed to their strategic frameworks?

    The IDC Summit has been prepared carefully to help Slovak decision makers answer these and other questions.
    We are looking forward to be working with you to Harness the  Forces of Change To Reshape The Enterprise.

IDC Keynote: Building Confidence in an Era of Uncertainty

Marc Dowd
Principal, IDC Leadership Advisory

 

Uncertainty is a fact of life in normal times, but since the arrival of Covid-19 this has become overwhelming for many organisations. Those that can provide more resilient ways of working and win the trust of their customers will be winners as the world works through a recession caused by the pandemic.

In this session we will look at:

  • The things that have changed due to the "new normal" that affect business confidence
  • How we can build the essential interoperability with customers and suppliers, and close relationships with employees.
  • What leading indicators can you use to get ahead of the game.
