This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation provides a quick situational overview and actionable guidance for tech leaders on how to form a foundational commitment for future IT with integral stakeholder-focused services.

Bringing maturity to IT products and services demands a proactive, almost prescient, approach to meeting stakeholder needs. Integral stakeholder-focused services anticipate the business needs, and position the solution and service providers, to deliver future-facing digital infrastructure to support the strategy and road map. CIOs need to lead both IT and business teams as a clear and capable champion for the future digital strategy.

“Future-facing digital leaders consider the people in the organization more broadly, and they see the integral nature of third-party and ecosystem relationships,” says Alizabeth Calder, adjunct research advisor for IDC’s IT Executive Programs (IEP). “Indeed, products and services that are focused on broader stakeholder needs foster strategies that are integral to the business model and form a foundational commitment for future IT.”
