This IDC Perspective provides an overview of this year European IDC CIO Summit 2018 — "The European CIO of 2019: The Orchestrator of the Digital Native Enterprise" — that took place in Cascais last September. This was a good opportunity to measure the pulse of the European CIOs' maturity, needs, and dreams, as well as a moment for sharing best practices and experiences around some of those Innovation Accelerators that are reshaping European industries' digital road maps. This document details the key topics in the three-day event, leveraging the results of a pre-event online survey that involved almost European CIOs and providing a sneak peek into the series of workshops that characterized the event.
"Digital determination needs to be throughout the organization — it can't just be the CIO — although she/he needs to be part of that as the orchestrator of the digital native enterprise," said Thomas Meyer, IDC European Group Vice President. "A few keywords are crucial for the CIO of 2019: digital determination, single strategy, building a road map, digital trust, culture and skills, and bringing together enterprise IT and the digital owners."
