IDC Enterprise Applications - Nordic|Benelux

DIGITAL FORUM | December 3, 2020



Digital transformation remains a top priority and business leaders have now experienced the importance of business continuity in a world they cannot always foresee.

Core enterprise systems have for many been in need of major renovation for a long time. This project is difficult and expensive, and it is fundamental that it works to run the business. But to move on to the digital age it is crucial that the core is ready to cope with the new complexity in the outer layer of IT.

Projects have been reprioritized, but for most remain top priority to secure long-term business competitiveness. The question is how business has changed, and what new elements and needs must be taken into consideration.

Ride the next wave of the rapid digitalization journey - The power of intelligently harvest information

Maria Moltzer

Principal business value consultant, OpenText
We will give you our insights and predictions for the future with regards of the importance of information manage net and how to harvest the same. The world are experiencing an  enforced digitalization and collaboration due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies are deploying collaboration tools such as teams, zoom and google teams in a rapid, agile and “need to basis” – stepping away from the more controlled implementation journeys. As a consequence the information generated during this year will most likely not follow the information / content management strategy and policies stated by organization. Key information are stored on a need to basis – sometimes unstructured, without access management control and back up and restore. This will have an impact on compliance, security but also the capabilities to harvest the information and generate intelligent insights. This keynote aim to give you some key take aways and ideas on how to manage this situation – Enlighted with examples from Nordic businesses. Hope to see you there!
