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.
