IT Strategy and Innovation: Leveraging Enterprise Collaboration to Drive Digital Transformation
This IDC study introduces the CIO's role in using collaboration practices and systems to help drive digital transformation (DX). It is intended to help CIOs understand the types of collaborations that may be needed for DX and includes a use case–based framework for identifying the components needed for different types of collaborations. It also identifies conditions that are necessary for successful collaboration-driven DX. The study answers four questions about the role of collaboration in DX:
How does enterprise collaboration enable and drive digital transformation?
What are the conditions that need to be in place for successful collaboration?
What are the components that must be considered in creating collaboration environments?
How should CIOs approach collaboration initiatives in the context of DX?
"The road to success in using collaboration to drive digital transformation takes a holistic approach to identifying the conditions necessary for successful collaboration and uses a systematic approach to designing collaboration environments for specific teams and communities based on their business goals and needs," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's Research Network.
