Dawn of the DX Economy: Exploiting the 3rd Platform's Next Generation

In this IDC FutureScape Web conference, Chief Analyst Frank Gens predicts ten key developments in the tech world that, in the next 18-36 months - and beyond, will impact every enterprise's ability to grow and compete. The predictions track the biggest story of our time: the continuing emergence and evolution of the 3rd Platform/Digital Transformation (DX) marketplace.

Over the past five years we've witnessed:

  • The maturing of the 3rd Platform's Four Pillars - Cloud, Mobile, Social, and Big Data technologies
  • The arrival of Innovation Accelerators - including Internet of Things, Cognitive/AI, Augmented/Virtual Reality, 3D Printing, Robotics, and Next-Gen Security
  • The first wave of Digital Transformation (DX) players, services, and solutions in every industry

In this year's FutureScape, we'll predict the key themes and events for the next chapter (2017-2020+):

  • The Four Pillars shifting into a new evolutionary stage to support a scaled-up DX Economy - including next-generation Cloud, Mobile, Social, and Big Data technologies and players
  • The maturing (and mashing up) of key Innovation Accelerators - especially in the areas of Cognitive/AI, the Internet of Things, and AR/VR
  • The take-off stage of the "DX Economy" - what happens as digital transformation - in every industry - reaches macroeconomic scale
  • On the horizon? - hints of what lies beyond the near- to mid-term 3rd Platform/DX world are already visible. We'll identify what comes next
