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.

Greek 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 CIO Summit Modules have been prepared carefully to help Greek decision makers answer these and other questions.

Join us and get some expert support for keeping your momentum — or just keeping afloat — in the new normal.
