This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation, which is part of IDC's Future Enterprise Planning Guide series, examines infrastructure modernization for the digital enterprise. Technology portfolio modernization and rationalization is the number 1 DX challenge for CIOs today and a critical prerequisite for successful IT transformation. IT organizations need to create an IT modernization and rationalization plan that aligns with their overall DX strategy. The COVID-19 crisis has made this need even more acute, as organizations must adapt to a fast-changing market environment with constraints on people and supplies.

Based on IDC's research, 83% of enterprises are rationalizing their technology infrastructure; however, only 35% report that their approach to rationalization is effective.

IDC believes that, from a practical and business perspective, modernization and rationalization enable IT to deliver innovative digital transformation products and competitive IT services at optimum cost.

CIOs and other high-level IT leaders will find a framework for modernization and rationalization of infrastructure, including KPIs for each of IDC's seven most critical success areas. Key is developing a balance between legacy and modern approaches in a continuous transformation process. Peer advice on roles and processes, operation plans, data services, system build paradigms, and technologies is included. To better achieve economic and business benefits, CIOs need to focus on modernization, not just rationalization.

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 process.
