IDC PeerScape: Practices for Engaging with Start-Ups to Accelerate Digital Innovation

By: Mitch BettsAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC study explores how CIOs can tap into the start-up ecosystem to accelerate digital transformation while managing the inherent risks of relying on start-ups for enterprise IT. Engaging with start-ups requires a substantial time commitment, including due diligence to avoid the pitfalls. But CIOs say that partnering with start-ups can lead to a big payoff — more innovation from emerging technologies and a competitive advantage for the business — even if some deals go sour.

"CIOs say that working with innovative start-ups can reenergize your IT group and give you a chance to peek into the future of IT. In an age of digital disruption, if you're not already working with start-ups, you're falling behind," says Mitch Betts, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs.
