A Road to Nowhere: The Majority of Enterprise Digital Transformation Strategies Lack Implementation Road Maps and Regular KPI Monitoring
This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights the results of IDC's 2019 Worldwide DX Executive Sentiment Survey. In IDC's 2019 Worldwide DX Executive Sentiment Survey, we asked 2,165 organizations about strategy, implementation planning road maps, and digital KPI monitoring for regular performance monitoring and investment priorities and their role in transformation success.
According to IDC's Shawn Fitzgerald, research director, Worldwide Digital Transformation Strategies at IDC, "In our latest research, we were surprised that over 67% of organizations undertaking digital transformation (DX) have a DX strategy, yet haven't developed a corresponding implementation plan road map. In addition, less than one-third of all leadership is using digital KPIs to regularly monitor transformation progress, yet the most senior leaders use these same KPIs to prioritize and make digital investments. These gaps are clear reasons why most enterprise organizations are struggling to realize their digital transformation goals."
