We prefaced 2020 by saying anything is possible, but no one foresaw this level of hyper volatility that completely disrupted business and life as we knew it. Our own research confirms that recent events have accelerated global digital transformation by several years. In past iterations of these events, we used to say "Transform or be left behind," but in our new reality, the ultimatum has become "Transform or risk complete closure."

Those who have made early inroads into DX are acclimatizing well, but the horizon is still ahead. Future market leaders will be those organizations that are able to build business resiliency — i.e., the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.

We will discuss solutions, approaches and best practices for resilient organizations at the IDC CIO Summit 2021, which will be held on September 9-10 in Nur-Sultan, The St. Regis Astana hotel.

The summit will bring together more than 100 CIOs from 11 countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
