"DX is not just another technology trend, but a critical business priority for many CEOs and their leadership teams across Asia/Pacific. Processes and business models that were optimal a few years ago are now outdated — or simply don't provide the speed and agility required to compete," says Daniel-Zoe Jimenez, associate director with IDC's Asia/Pacific Digital Transformation and Big Data/Analytics research group. "The APEJ region is at a very nascent stage — the largest percentage of organizations (45%) are Digital Resisters, as they fall in the first stage of DX maturity, compared with 14% in the United States. Organizations need to focus on accelerating their digital capabilities; otherwise, they will face irrelevance. If successfully done, this will help drive competitive advantage, grow revenue, and ultimately increase market share."
