This IDC study uses the IDC FutureScape model to provide an assessment of the key trends for the next year and their long-term impact. Over the past year, we have seen tremendous momentum in the influence of digital transformation (DX) on technology spending across geographies and industries. Digital transformation is a board-level initiative and is at the heart of business strategies for companies of all sizes.
"IDC estimates that there is the potential for over $18 trillion of new value to be harvested. However, we are still at the early stages and we offer our annual FutureScape predictions to provide planning assumptions for companies that are creating their investment strategies related to DX." — Bob Parker, group vice president and Digital Transformation lead at IDC
