Last week, IDC presented its top 10 predictions for IT industry for 2021. The report highlights how enterprise IT teams are navigating the challenges posed by the pandemic and seeking to gain competitive advantage in the new normal.
The pandemic has not just spared but has accelerated digital growth. Despite the disruptions caused globally, enterprise IT teams are marching towards what the report refers to as “digital destiny” as most of the products and services today are either based on digital delivery models or require digital capabilities to stay in the competitive playground. The IDC report states, “65% of global GDP is digitalized by 2022, driving $6.8 trillion of IT spending from 2020 to 2023.”
