IDC Asia/Pacific Honors Digital-First Champions at IDC DX Summit and Future Enterprise Awards 2022

The IDC DX Summit and Future Enterprise Awards 2022 is an Asia/Pacific-wide Event with Country-specific Agenda on Digital-First Imperatives for Future-Forward Enterprises.

SINGAPORE, September 29, 2022 – IDC nears the launch of the annual DX Summit as a series of exclusive, invite-only, in-person or virtual event experiences held across 11 countries in Asia/Pacific from 05 October to 05 November.

Now on its sixth year, the event will convene IDC executives, business and technology leaders from across different industries in the Asia Pacific region. With this year’s theme of Symphony in a Digital-First Key, the event will explore how enterprises can interconnect the pillars of remastering, recreating, and remixing to become a future enterprise or an organization that underpins business processes with technology, is fueled by innovation, platform-enabled, while being ecosystem-centric.

“Businesses are accelerating from discrete digital transformation projects to employing digital-first strategies spanning the entire leadership team. Investments in DX will reach US$2.8 trillion between 2022 and 2025. This ‘digital-first’ mindset, as IDC terms, centers around how digital technology can be effectively employed to better achieve lasting business outcomes. In taking digital-first approaches, leading organizations are ushering in the next DX era — from scaling digital within the organization to running a viable digital business,” says Linus Lai, Chief Analyst A/NZ and Digital Business Research Lead, IDC Asia/Pacific.

Conversations during the event will revolve around data and AI, Cloud, 5G, Blockchain, Security, IT Operations, customer experience trends, ecosystem-centric business models, and sustainable and ethical business standards, among others. The event will also have networking opportunities with subject matter experts and peers, as well as immersive experiences in partners’ solutions and services showcase.

At IDC DX Summit Asia/Pacific to be held in Singapore, business and technology leaders from different industries engage, while IDC commits to ensuring no one is left behind. In fact, IDC is promoting inclusiveness by collaborating with the Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) to educate attendees on basic sign language, creating a social environment that supports interaction with the hard-of-hearing and deaf community. IDC pledges SGD$50 towards SADeaf for every delegate who records a video message in sign language. Lastly, to ensure inclusivity among our virtual viewers, live captioning and subtitles will be made available to cater to the hard-of-hearing and deaf community who will be watching the live-stream of the Summit on IDC Arena. 

IDC’s DX Summit and Future Enterprise Awards 2022 will celebrate the tech-enabled resilience of changemakers in Asia/Pacific who have successfully navigated the increasing challenges of a fast-paced digital world and the ongoing storms of disruptions affecting enterprises today. The country winners of the Future Enterprise Awards 2022 will compete at the regional finals happening at the highly anticipated IDC Asia/Pacific DX Summit and Future Enterprise Awards 2022 in Singapore on October 26, 2022.
