This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation is part of IDC's Future Enterprise Planning Guide series. Each module delivers key overviews, targeted advice, and peer insights to guide users through key parts of the digital transformation (DX) process.

Building a "digital transformation platform" that can sustain, advance, and scale business and operations may be the most important step leaders make in the next 10 years.

Once the platform approach is decided, this document will help senior IT leaders and their implementation teams find the most appropriate ways to architect and implement that vision. While every platform is different, IDC will help you understand the three most important frameworks common to successful DX platforms.

A DX platform is absolutely necessary for delivering digital transformation at scale. The platform will be the anchor point for the future enterprise and for developing and maintaining a digital business ecosystem. Understanding the five critical dimensions for the DX platform is vital to a successful transition. Avoiding challenges such as ungoverned development, culture wars, and security are key to successfully architecting a true DX platform.

The COVID-19 crisis has revealed the importance of digital platforms and of designing and planning for resiliency and adaptability.
