This IDC FutureScape provides the Australian view of the IDC FutureScape: Worldwide IT Industry 2021 Predictions (IDC #US46942020, October 2020). It delivers a detailed look at what is happening and what is expected to happen over the next five years and supplies essential strategic guidance to Australian organisations looking to become digital leaders.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed companies over the digital transformation tipping point and in 2021 Australian organisations will be solidifying gains made during the height of the pandemic," says Neha Ralhan, Australia and New Zealand Research Manager. "While the level of digital maturity will largely determine agenda, a strategic push to shore up digital resiliency is at the forefront across industries. Hybrid working models, innovation at scale, training and addressing skill shortages, reallocating resources, and building up digital elasticity are key areas that Australian organisations will be focusing on to ensure they are ready for the new normal," she adds.
