European Digital Transformation Strategies

It is too bad Digital Transformation (DX) has become an overused buzzword – because it is just getting interesting. In Europe, spending on DX-related technology is growing by more than 16% every year. Two-thirds of CEOs are under tremendous pressure to demonstrate success from new business and operational models. And IT suppliers are abandoning transactional relationships for long-term strategic partnerships as they cultivate opportunities.

IDC's European Digital Transformation Strategies documents the realities of DX by focusing on tangible examples of exceptional digital leadership, case studies, hard data, and vendor strategies across all industries. The program is supported by over 25 analysts who all help establish an unparalleled level of coverage across technology and geographical domains.
