Digital-First Strategies for Volatile Times

IDC Summit

What is around the corner for the technology market in 2023?

As we are moving from one crisis to the next, organizations need to adapt or stay behind. The 7th edition of IDC Summit is here to provide you with insights into the critical trends, rising opportunities, and new strategic options.
In times like these, the CXOs’s highest value will be their ability to look at the integrated business and IT portfolio, make the tough decisions and adjust IT strategy. How to get beyond the usual focus on operational efficiency? Businesses that want to move from the phase of discussing the “digital transformation” to the enthusiastic embrace of digital-first business need visionary leadership.
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.
Why Attend?
IDC Summit will take you through the current storm of disruptions and market uncertainties. Our analysts will share their latest insights. After attending the event, you will have actionable guidance for managing and communicating IT investment priorities and implementation strategies.

We are looking forward to seeing you in person!
