IDC & Hitachi Virtual Roundtable

Implementing a Successful Infrastructure and Data Foundation to Thrive in the Digital Economy

October 8, 2020


IDC and Hitachi are hosting an executive virtual roundtable aimed at bringing together a select group of IT business leaders to discuss and share best practices on creating a business-centric and data-centric IT architecture.


We are at a tipping point of becoming a Digital Economy – in fact, in the next two years, more than 50% of European GDP will come from digital services & products. A Digitally Transformed Enterprise, or what we call the ‘Digital Enterprise’ is one that is ready to capture the opportunities in the new Economy, as well as deliver business resilience in times of crisis.

A Digital Enterprise requires a business-centric and data-centric IT architecture – one that IDC calls – a “digital platform”. The Digital Platform is built on highly automated and fault tolerant infrastructure that form the crux where data is managed, utilized and turned to value. A data-driven culture, IT governance, integration, and new apps are the enablers of this architecture.

About 4 out of 10 European organizations we surveyed are already prioritizing data capitalization and data monetization with a view to deliver operational efficiency, new customer experiences or new revenue streams. Infrastructure transformation is opening up opportunities for companies to build a new data management framework. Modernizing every step of the data journey is the recipe for continuous success.

IDC and Hitachi will facilitate a virtual roundtable discussion with a select group of IT business leaders to discuss:

  • How does your data management framework and IT infrastructure relate to your organisations digital strategy?
  • Is your data management framework and IT infrastructure set for a data-driven future? Best practices to building a data platform.

Join us on the 8th of October to get insights how to create a business-centric and data-centric IT architecture.
