Digital Transformation: Critical Issues

Digital Transformation: Critical Issues

This IDC study provides CIOs and IT executives with an overview of IDC's IT Executive Program (IEP) Digital Transformation Practice. It explains the area and scope of the practice, lays out the key issues, and describes the main research themes focused on addressing those issues. In addition, it describes the benefits and challenges of addressing these issues so that LOB and IT leaders can assess the role of digital transformation (DX) in their enterprise, strategies, goals, and challenges.Enterprise leaders today are called upon to leverage 3rd Platform technologies and new business and operating models to transform and disrupt their business, customers, markets, and competitors. To survive, let alone compete, traditional organizations have to change, sometimes dramatically. IDC has created a framework for digital transformation to help business and IT leaders understand and cope with the challenges and opportunities that digital transformation can bring to their enterprises. "Business and technology executives must view and act on digital transformation threats and opportunities as an urgent, 'disrupt or be disrupted' imperative for their enterprises. Digital transformation and the accompanying business, customer, and market changes and dislocations will only become increasingly powerful as the combined forces of 3rd Platform technologies, new business models, and societal and personal trends continue to roil markets and industries," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network.
