IDC has created a use case taxonomy for digital transformation for multiple industry segments. The taxonomy follows a hierarchical structure that begins with the digital mission of that industry, the strategic priorities that support that mission, the programs that will be initiated to satisfy the priorities and the funded projects, or use cases, that will be implemented under these programs. The taxonomy not only forms the basis for our market forecasts but also provides the framework for the digital journey maps that will assist our clients in understanding the full scope of enterprise efforts.
