Think Big, Start Small, and Scale Fast: Highlights from the 2018 IDC Pan–European Utilities Executive Summit
This IDC Perspective summarizes some of the topics discussed at the sixth edition of IDC Pan-European Utilities Executive Summit, hosted by IDC Energy Insights in Genval, Belgium, on March 19 and 20, 2018. The main theme of the summit was "Think Big, Start Small, and Scale Fast," one of the rules of thumb that European utilities can follow to overcome common roadblocks in their transformation journey. "From siloed transformation initiatives to outdated KPIs, there are many stumbling blocks on utilities' journey to business transformation," said Jean-François Segalotto, research manager, IDC Energy Insights. "European utilities have taken many of these challenges head-on and are working on their individual success stories. The workstream at this year's IDC Pan–European Utilities Executive Summit deliberately focused on sharing some of these success stories."
