Almost 60% of companies in the CEE region have not yet formed a digital transformation (DX) strategy, while the main goal for those that have is to improve automation and efficiency. Main drivers for DX initiatives in CEE companies include the adoption of new technologies used by partners and customers, the emergence of new business models, and — obviously — staying competitive in their market.
Following the huge success of the local editions of IDC CIO Summits across the CEE region, we're sure that you would not want to miss the chance to be part of the IDC CIO Summit 2018, taking place in Athens on June 28.
