CIOs Driving the Digital Business in an Unpredictable World

Coverage: Europe

The world has become a more complex and chaotic place to do business in

Revenues from digital services, products, and experiences continue to grow and for many organizations now provide the lion's share of income (or will soon). This has significant implications for CIOs. The most direct outcome is that technology is intertwined with — and impacts the lives of — employees, customers, partners, and society. Technology products, services, and solutions have become a fundamental pillar when looking at performance and growth, engagement and satisfaction, safety and security, governance and privacy, sustainability, ethics, well-being and payments, and many more.
The IDC Xchange will help CIOs understand these new and emerging roles, and how they can succeed while creating innovative solutions for current and emerging challenges — adapting to changing business environments, creating new business models, and massively scaling in the digital economy.
Why Attend?
IDC CIO Xchange is an IDC community event that connects senior IT, data and business professionals from several industries and countries. IDCs analysts together with our advisory board aim to create the best-in-class independent content agenda based on insights from their research and close collaboration with industry executives, and thought leaders. By joining the community you will get the future industry trends, actionable recommendations, hands-on experience from external speakers and last but not least - a chance to connect and network with your peers from the biggest European companies.
