The race to digital transformation continues. According to IDC, 55% of the global economy will be digitized by 2021. Leveraging the latest technologies to achieve business transformation, innovation and growth, has become central to the future of organizations and will be the foundation of healthy development in the digital economy.

To better support businesses in their digital transformation journey, it is imperative for CXOs to transform their way of thinking and leverage on the experience and knowledge from other industries as well as their own.

IDC believes in providing a peer-group platform for C-level executives (or CXOs) from various industries where insights and best practices can be shared so that business leaders can make informed decisions. The IDC CXO Excellence Circle was created with this purpose in mind.
