In today's world, digital transformation (DX) has attained a macroeconomic scale and impact, becoming the core of what industry leaders do and how they operate. The DX economy is driven by digital-native enterprises. Born in the digital era, these enterprises are disrupting the traditional models and forms of interactions between the customer and the product or service.
In order to succeed in the DX economy, established enterprises must embrace a "digital native" approach to the way they think and act, transforming their organizations through the establishment of core digital competencies in the areas of leadership, relationships, information, operation, and talent.
The digital battlefield is intensifying, and all industries are being disrupted. So join us at the IDC IT Roadshow 2018 as we equip you with in-depth insights into innovative digital strategies that will help your organization unlock new revenue streams, increase profitability, and revolutionize the customer experience.

Panel Discussion: The CXO Growth Imperative: Innovate, Integrate and Incorporate Technology Chaired by: Hamza Naqshbandi, Country Manager, IDC - Saudi Arabia
Technological change is the biggest, most disruptive force facing today's corporations. But technology isn’t changing only corporations — it's also changing the job of the CXO, bringing with it the challenge of keeping up with technological development. While there are multiple sources of potentially valuable intelligence, CXOs have to be clear about their priorities and also reconsider the composition of their teams, which must reflect the modern age and be on top of new technology and concepts that tap into the voice of customers, communities, and social media in a digital environment. The way CXOs communicate with the organization and other stakeholders is also changing. And while technology provides valuable new communication channels for any business leader, its use does not come without concerns. This session will explore how CXOs can leverage technology to assess and deliver on evolving customer expectations by implementing customer relationship management systems, interpreting complex and evolving needs of customers through data and analytics, and improving communication and engagement with the use of social media.

Data and Business Analytics
12:40 - 12:50
Digital transformation, improved connectivity, and the proliferation of devices have made data abundant, ubiquitous, and highly valuable. At the same time, enterprise and consumer activities are creating a digital trace that has the potential to provide the requisite raw materials for data distilleries. This distilled data or structured data intelligence can then be used to enhance operations, improve customer service, and radically transform business processes and outcomes. At the crux of this entire transformation wave is the new resource that now needs to be refined, renewed, and distributed profitably – data. Given that data is the new natural resource of the Middle East in the post-oil era, this session will outline strategies for extracting the greatest possible value from it.
