The CIO's Guide to the Future of Connectedness
This IDC Perspective is the CIO's guide to the future of connectedness, which will be a source of exponential challenge as CIOs move from pandemic response to enabling a robust next normal that allows access to everything, everywhere, anytime, and from any device. IT organizations will have to enable robust and resilient capabilities and surpass traditional business models across a significantly diverse connected ecosystem.
"The future of connectedness envisions a framework that aligns data in motion — and its reliance on connectivity — to drive business outcomes like pervasive digital experiences, business continuity, scalable access anytime anywhere, and real-time insights," says Alizabeth Calder, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "By focusing on the elements of the connectivity-driven ecosystem, we have an unprecedented opportunity to bring innovation that drives value and growth through digital infrastructure and a robust strategy for data in motion."
