Executing change and transformation and improving business processes represent the top strategic priorities of CIOs in Central and Eastern Europe, according to an IDC survey conducted among chief information officers attending IDC's CIO Summits throughout 2016. As the survey makes clear, CIOs are gearing up to drive their organizations’ digital transformation (DX) in the coming years.

All the elements for underpinning digital transformation are in place. Investment priorities are geared to new technologies, budgets have been assigned, and perhaps most importantly:

  • more than 70% of CIOs see their role as shifting from that of an operational officer to DX officer/agent of innovation
  • more than 50% of CIOs in CEE will increase their IT budgets this year to reflect the need for DX spending

IDC Digital Forum event series 2017 is an information-sharing and networking platform for CxOs and line-of-business (LoB) executives from leading local organizations. Attendees will engage in challenging debates and cutting-edge knowledge sharing with IDC analysts and industry thought leaders regarding the opportunities that digital transformation provides for gaining competitive advantage.
