Nothing could have prepared the world for the unprecedented chain of events in 2020. It is now in our power and our responsibility to re-think and re-build organizations better suited to the future challenges and prosperous in the technology dominated world.

We prefaced 2020 saying anything is possible, but no one saw 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 over two years. While we used to say "transform or be left behind" in past iterations of these events, in our new reality, the call is transforming or risk the complete closure.

Those who have made early inlays into DX are acclimatizing well in this changed world. But the horizon that awaits will separate market leaders from everyone else based on which organizations are able to build business resiliency: the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.

The IDC European CIO Digital Summit 2021 will offer guidance on the roadmap to re-building organizations for the post-pandemic, post-globalization era: the gold standard of a digitally-transformed organization navigating and creating their own new realities in a changed world.
