Quick Market Insights, 2021: Chapter V — Building Future IT Today
This IDC Perspective (video) provides IT leadership insights and challenges from IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP) clients and prospects for the period from April 27 to May 29, 2021. At IDC, we are seeing CIOs and senior IT leaders transitioning from being technologists to become business leaders with a focus on technology. As part of this process, they are focusing on "future IT": creating an IT organization with the technical and organizational capabilities to support extraordinary customer experiences through robust cybersecurity, strong ecosystems, and resilience.
"CIOs face extraordinary opportunities in extraordinary times. They have the opportunity to have an impact on every corner of their businesses, agencies, or organizations," notes Martha Rounds, research director with IDC's IT Executive Programs. "CIOs will step up to this role in part by creating strong partnerships, alliances, and friendships — outside of their traditional technology realm."
