Overview

Technology Will Play an even Greater Role in Getting Us All to the Next Normal

 

The pandemic illustrated why an organization needs to be able to rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions. While the Crisis stage of the Pandemic Crisis is past, recovery from economic disruptions and adjusting to more long-lasting changes in social and business practices will dominate enterprise IT investment decisions and reshape priorities over the next five years. The one clear conclusion: technology will play an even greater role in getting us all to the next Normal.

 

The IDC FutureScape Virtual Forum we will focus on four major developments:

Acceleration

Identifying where the crisis and enterprises' responses are accelerating existing IT trends Remediation

Remediation

Identify where enterprises will focus investments in the next two years to remediate shortcoming in existing IT environments exposed by the crisis as well as shortcomings introduced during initial emergency responses.

Extension

Identify where enterprises will seek to leverage technologies to take advantage of competitive and industry disruptions and extend their capabilities in the new normal.

Ecosystem Transition

Identify how enterprise responses to the other three developments will alter the IT industry ecosystem itself. Who is positioned to capitalize; who needs to accelerate transitions in business models; and how will these changes reshape existing parenting relationships?

Join us as IDC shares insight to shape enterprise IT strategy and planning by providing a framework for evaluating IT initiatives in terms of their value to business strategy. IDC's FutureScapes are comprised of a set of predictions designed to identify a range of pending issues that CIOs and senior technology professionals will confront within the typical five-year business planning cycle. Each prediction is assessed on the basis of its complexity, organizational impact, and time frame to expected mainstream adoption.

The Future Enterprise: Developing Digital Resiliency

Meredith Whalen
Chief Research Officer, IDC

The COVID-19 pandemic illustrated why an organization needs to be able to rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions. But it will not be the last disruption organizations face. 

The digital economy, which will rely heavily on the continued flow of goods and services around the globe, transformational technology platforms, and business innovation, will create more cycles of disruption to business operations and business models than any other economic period. Organizations succeeding in the digital economy will need to employ a new C-Suite agenda to excel at pivoting rapidly, capitalizing on change and driving innovation in times of uncertainty. 

Join Meredith Whalen, IDC’s Chief Research Officer, as she outlines the new digital enterprise agenda and how you can develop digital resiliency.
