The Future of IT: Rethinking Digitalization for an AI Everywhere World

Overview

Türkiye has ambitious plans to become one of the top 20 countries in the rankings of international AI indices. Through the establishment of its National Artificial Intelligence Strategy Steering Committee, the country aims to increase the contribution of AI to GDP by 5% and boost employment in the field of AI to 50,000 people. With the emergence of generative AI (GenAI), many leading organizations in Türkiye are already exploring and investing in GenAI use cases. IDC believes that organizations need to be ready for an "AI Everywhere" world in the future. We forecast that annual spending on AI-centric systems will surpass $300 billion worldwide by 2026, while ICT spending in Türkiye is expected to surpass $21.9 billion by 2027.

Today, the heat is on! In the era of GenAI-driven disruption, technology leaders are reassessing their approach to AI's pivotal role in the digitalization landscape. The transformative power of AI to significantly enhance digital innovation, customer experiences, operational efficiencies, and sustainability is propelling forward-thinking governments and digitally driven organizations toward an "AI Everywhere" mindset — making it a tech agenda priority to maintain competitive parity with early adopters.

As a result, today’s IT leaders increasingly find themselves in multidimensional, strategic, and collaborative roles, where reporting structures and mandates have evolved, elevating their prominence, and expanding their responsibilities. With AI becoming increasingly embedded in services, products, and experiences, the technology is set to become intertwined with the lives of employees, customers, partners, and society at large. Indeed, AI will be everywhere — underpinning performance, growth, engagement, satisfaction, safety, security, governance, privacy, sustainability, ethics, wellbeing, payments, and more.

CIOs and IT leaders need to work on their organizations' readiness for an "AI Everywhere" future. This will require a focus on key enabling elements such as building a data-centric platform, migrating to cloud infrastructure, governing cloud economics, redefining security and digital trust, and investing in skills.

The IDC Türkiye CIO Summit 2024 will provide an essential platform for empowering IT leaders. It will help them better understand their new roles in today's AI-infused landscape and serve expert guidance on achieving success while crafting innovative solutions for current and emerging challenges. Join us as we discuss a multitude of hot topics, trends, and challenges, providing technology leaders with the critical insights they require to adapt to shifting business landscapes, forge new business models, and scale massively in today’s dynamic digital economy.
