A broad portfolio of empowering and disruptive technologies have begun to impact our organizations and those of our competitors, challenging IT and business leaders to accelerate, innovate and reinvent customer-facing and internal processes. In this IDC FutureScape presentation, Joseph Pucciarelli, Group Vice-President and research leader for IDC’s Worldwide CIO Agenda research, shares the team’s insights on the most relevant global trends and key predictions impacting CIOs, IT professionals and their organizations. Key topics we will discuss: the rising importance of artificial intelligence, including AI’s application to IT operations; the imperative to deliver “agile connectivity” through APIs and services; and the new enterprise governance, strategy and policy initiatives CIOs are being tasked to lead. Senior IT leaders and line-of-business executives will come away from this session with a clear view of the imperatives and challenges they will be confronting, and leadership insights to guide them as they shape their organizations’ IT investment priorities and implementation strategies.
