This IDC study discusses our predictions that once again present a strategic blueprint for enterprises on their digital transformation (DX) journey, focusing on 10 key ingredients for becoming a digital-native enterprise. Six of these themes continue from last year but will show significant acceleration and evolution from 2018 and beyond. The other four predictions introduce critical new building blocks for becoming digital-native enterprises.

According to Frank Gens, IDC SVP and chief analyst, "In 2018, the key pieces of the 3rd Platform's second chapter will come together with even greater force, driving enterprises to multiply their digital innovation pace and scale through mastery of digital platforms, external digital developer communities, data-as-a-service (DaaS) marketplaces, expanding artificial intelligence (AI) services, blockchain as a service, new human-digital (HD) interfaces, and open API ecosystems."
