Productivity - Experience - Revenue
IDC Directions 2024 will be held on Thursday, March 14 in Boston, Massachusetts and on Wednesday, April 3 in San Jose, California. The full-day event includes eight mainstage speakers, 15 breakout sessions, and much more.
IDC believes that the next phase of the market transition towards AI Everywhere will focus on delivering quantifiable business impact from ongoing AI investments. This will play out across three broad categories:
Productivity gains, as AI breathes new life into automation initiatives across ITOps, software development and business processes.
Compelling experiences to enable employees, customers, partners and suppliers to interact with AI-infused applications in completely new ways.
Generate new revenue streams, as AI-enabled business models accelerate potential for growth.
It will also mean new questions will be asked at every layer of the tech stack: What’s the optimal infrastructure environment (Cloud, On-Prem/Edge) for the various types of AI models? How will infusing AI in applications lead to monetization? And how will new value accrue due to the AI Transformation of services?
Meet this year's IDC mainstage speakers who will focus on IT and Digital initiatives to help organizations overcome the economic, political, and social disruptions impacting their business.
