IDC DX Forum

Digital Leaders for the Digital Era

Doha, March 23, 2022


Digital transformation (DX) itself is changing, ushering in a new chapter where organizations and their CEOs are reprioritizing their agendas. Winning in the new era means addressing new customer requirements, developing new capabilities, and building digital infrastructures that support resilient operations and pervasive experiences for the new digital economy.

Digital leaders that can make change happen quickly and effectively are in high demand as they make it possible for organizations to transition from surviving to thriving. The increasing pervasiveness of DX initiatives is compelling business leaders to develop a clear understanding of how they can effectively leverage emerging technologies to maximize value for their organizations.

At the same time, the IT organization must transform into an innovation source for internal clients so they are better positioned to serve external customers and partners. Linking IT resources to business outcomes is essential for driving successful partnerships between IT and lines of business. As such, IT and business leaders must closely examine where their businesses are now, and where they want them to be in the future.

With all this in mind, the IDC DX Forum 2022 will provide you with all the access you need to become a key element in enabling the digital goals of organizations' development plans, strategies, and visions.

IDC Keynote: Harnessing the Forces of Change to Reshape the Enterprise

Eren Eser

Senior Research Manager, Türkiye, IDC
Far-reaching changes in diverse areas such as society, organizational culture, and technology are redefining what it takes for organizations to remain competitive and generate business success. Now is the time to harness the power of technology and reshape the organization with a modern digital enterprise experience. The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated change. For IT and digital transformation projects, what would previously have taken months now takes a matter of weeks or even days. This session will explain how CIOs can maintain this new pace of productivity while avoiding burnout. It will offer guidance on the changes that need to be made to strategic frameworks to enable organizations to respond to volatile customer demand, enhance IT and operational agility, and adapt to evolving work arrangements.

Excellence in the Digital Economy: A Blueprint for Success 

Murat Acinci

In this new economy, enterprises will be measured by their ability to hit and exceed a whole new set of demanding performance benchmarks enabled by 3rd Platform technologies and powerful innovation accelerators. The digital transformation efforts of global leaders will no longer just be limited to "projects" and "initiatives" but will instead be core to what their organizations produce and how they operate. This session will explain how success will only be gained by those enterprises that can adapt to become true "digital natives", instilling the right behaviors in employees and executives and empowering them with the right tools to deliver ever-more impressive experiences to customers.

Build it Fast, Right, and for the Future

Yasser Shaer

The way most software is built makes change difficult and costly, and this is why most projects fail, constantly missing deadlines, exceeding costs and failing to deliver on the promised benefits.

In this session we will illustrate how technology built for change can help companies quickly build innovative, enterprise scale applications: build them fast, build them right, and build them for the future.
