This IDC FutureScape presents the top 10 predictions and key drivers for the Western European IT industry for the next five years.
The predictions track the biggest IT story of our time: the digital transformation (DX) of modern enterprises and the application of IT to multiply innovation in the DX economy. IDC's research shows that 63% of European CEOs are under considerable pressure to deliver a successful digital transformation strategy. Digital transformation is now, more than ever, a board-level priority, as the CEOs of European organizations are focusing on new ways of leveraging technology to redefine their business models to take advantage of new growth opportunities as we head towards an exciting 2019.
These new business models are underpinned by new technologies such as IoT, AI, AR/VR, and blockchain and are forcing a rethink of organizational structures, processes, and, importantly, how to measure success with new key performance indicators (KPIs).
In addition, new regulations such GDPR and PSD2 need to be considered. Every organization needs to strike a new balance between risk and openness, as digital trust becomes a key part of the future business.
The next three years will be critical, as organizations are expected to deliver tangible business benefits from emerging innovative use cases —most of which are still in the incubation or proof-of-value phase of their lifecycle.
