Leverage insights from respected industry leaders

Digital transformation (DX) will continue to dramatically reshape the global economy as the next phase of 3rd Platform technology rollouts hit full stride. If the first phase was about experimentation and siloed innovation, the next chapter will be characterized by multiplied innovation and autonomy as platform wars intensify and data is increasingly used for competitive advantage.
Beyond 2022, we will see large-scale automation with ubiquitous AI and robotics, the emergence of digital twins on a massive scale, and exponential change in the competitive landscape. A new "IT world order" is on the horizon, built around changing technologies, new offerings, evolving business models, and emerging DX use cases. New IT industry power positions are coming to the fore and ICT vendor leadership ranks are being disrupted.
Against this backdrop, CIOs and other CxOs will need to constantly calibrate and chart their own course of digital innovation, breaking the digital deadlock by developing new digital capabilities, performance metrics, and organization structures. Join us at the IDC South Africa CIO Summit 2019 to learn more.
The IDC CIO Summit Series 2019 will provide essential guidance on:
