Digital transformation (DX) is at the center of modern organizational strategies. IDC estimates the economic value of DX at over $20 trillion, or over 20% of global GDP, with direct investment of over $8.2 trillion as organizations and entire industries transform themselves to compete in the digital economy.
This Worldwide Digital Transformation Strategies program looks at how companies are transforming decision making with technology with speed, scale, and agility, creating sustainable performance excellence in the digital economy along with where companies are challenged to become digitally capable at scale.
IDC's globally recognized industry-leading DX taxonomies provide structured and demonstrable guidance for over 20 distinct industry and government verticals, highlighting how to create and enable digital transformation success competencies for operating in the digital economy through a four-tiered model. These industries are supported across 18 digital missions, almost 80 strategic priorities, over 200 programs, and almost 800 business outcome–oriented specific project-level use cases (business and IT-enabled digital projects), plus another 170+ back-office and administrative operations use cases covering the functional areas.
Worldwide Digital Transformation Strategies program benchmarks the maturity of enterprise transformation efforts, identifies organizational impact, provides guidance on building new capabilities, and prioritizes investment options. This program is also fully supported and aligned by IDC Digital Transformation Strategies Spending Guide that enables quantitative analysis of investment by industry, technology, and use case taxonomy framework.
