Digital-First Strategies for Volatile Times

We are moving from one crisis to the next and organizations must be able to adapt to any disruptions to their business. Resiliency and agility are crucial to business success in periods of uncertainty with disrupted supply chains, rising inflation, geopolitical instability, energy price spikes, increasing cybersecurity threats, skills shortages, and the ongoing global pandemic.
As we reflect on the many changes wrought over the past two years, one will be that we have transitioned from discussing “digital transformation” to the active embrace of digital-first business and technology strategies — technology underpins the business model of the future.
Further, this new digital-first business model includes the Future CIO as a member of its leadership team as it strives to deliver the transformational capabilities, services, and products the business needs to meet this new imperative.
More than ever, the CIO’s highest value will be their ability to look at the integrated business and IT portfolio and make the tough decisions and adjust IT strategy, going beyond their usual focus on operational efficiency.

IDC CIO Summit is designed to provide CIOs and digital business leaders with insight into the critical trends, rising opportunities, and new strategic options over the next years.

If you want to get actionable guidance for managing and communicating IT investment priorities and implementation strategies as IT navigates the storms of disruption and to learn more about how digital leaders can step into the role of Future CIO and lead the transformation agenda, register for the upcoming IDC CIO Summit 2023.
