IDC CxO Directions - Nordic

Driving the digital organisation forward

DIGITAL FORUM | January 25, 2022
Watch Video


Over the next two years, enterprises focused on digital resiliency will adapt to disruption and extend services to respond to new conditions 50% faster than those fixated on restoring existing business/IT resiliency levels. Digital resiliency is the ability to rapidly adapt to business disruptions, leverage digital capabilities to accelerate business operations, and automate processes to quickly take advantage of changed conditions to capitalize on new market opportunities. In 2022, workforces, products and services – anywhere and everywhere – must be based on a digital-delivery model or leverage AI/ML-based digital augmentation to remain competitive.

IDC CxO Directions 2022 will deliver insights and provide guidance on how your organization can prioritize product development, introduce new services and establish new partnerships to boost your customers’ digital resiliency, ensuring your own success in the next normal.

IDC CxO Directions 2022 will help business leaders, IT executives, technology suppliers, and others better understand the opportunities and obstacles impacting the accelerating shift toward digital resiliency.

This year’s IDC CxO Directions agenda will feature predictions, insights, and usable guidance from IDC and will be presented by Rick VIllars, IDC’s Group Vice President

Be on the edge with your data

Nordic companies are facing a new era, where data can help them become more agile and competitive. A new study by Dell Technologies shows that most companies have much more data than they can handle. Companies need to have a data strategy, so they can turn data into data-driven advantages, rather than burdens. In this presentation, Dell Technologies will provide insights into why companies need edge intelligence and how they take advantage of the emerging 5G technology and Edge solutions to handle and analyze their data better in the future - so they can become data leaders in the new data era.
