IDC PeerScape: Practices for Creating a Compelling Digital Transformation Vision
This IDC PeerScape introduces five practices that help senior business and technology leaders create a compelling and sellable digital transformation vision. Getting the DX vision "right" is an essential ingredient for success, but successful visions don't just happen — they have to be crafted based on business goals, organizational culture and capacity for change, market and customer needs and opportunities, and the organization's ability to innovate technology and business and operating models. Moreover, they have to drive stakeholder acceptance and support. This IDC PeerScape, based on best practices of successful digital transformers, provides specific advice for creating a DX vision that is both the starting point for the DX journey and the fuel that sustains it."The future of business is clearly technology fueled, and leaders will have to build DX muscle in order to survive or thrive. No industry or business will escape disruption. IDC believes that, when it comes to DX, the best defense against disruption is a good offense that is supported and guided by a strong DX vision, which is embraced by employees, customers, partners, and others," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network.
