It's critical for an organization to build a roadmap that is wider than individual projects. IDC recommends building a roadmap with use cases layered into horizons, allowing for modularity and scalability. The roadmap will move from the very executable in Horizon 1 to more abstract in Horizon 3, where technology may not yet be feasible for full implementation.Explore IDC DX Use Cases

CIOs and Senior IT Leaders
CIOs must reinvent IT top to bottom, create new digital platforms with agile connectivity and modernise legacy systems or risk professional extinction.
In a multiplied innovation economy built on emerging technologies, CIOs must reinvent the IT organisation to enable their enterprise to take advantage of the most powerful wave of the digital transformation. They must also reinvent customer, employee and partner experiences to strengthen trust and resilience, while learning to live with and manage risks posed by AI and machine learning (ML) by reinventing IT governance. Moreover, they need to reinvent IT leadership by orchestrating armies of bots and automated processes in addition to leading people. CIOs are reinventing IT through IT transformation (ITX).
