Overview

At the start of 2020, CIOs were in a corner, as budgets had been shifting to other senior C-Level functions and transformation initiatives based on technology splintered across business units. The result was that only 26% of organisations in Europe gained ROI from the more than $300 billion invested in digital transformation in 2020.

Then the crisis happened. Remote working, quick cloud migrations, cybersecurity stress tests — overnight, IT leaders became the most influential voice in the C-Suite. Technology was the saviour.

As 2021 unfolds, the question is: can senior IT leaders invest this new-found political capital wisely? How can they increase their influence on digital initiatives at C-Suite level and help make their organisations more agile? Which architectural choice should they place their chips on?

During this interactive roundtable you will hear IDC's latest European research on these topics, before in-depth discussions with peers around the following key themes:

  • The political capital of a CIO: Behavioural and platform learnings from the 2020 crisis
  • Identifying transformative use cases and triggering a "tug-of-value" in the C-Suite
  • Quick returns: the composition of the technology architecture of the future
