    DT: The Innovation Imperative of a Digital Strategy - Challenges and Opportunities

    Hosted By: Digital Transformation




    Robert (Bob) Parker Group Vice President at IDC will share the latest IDC research related to Digital Transformation (DX) — a transformation that is enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT allows organizations to reinvent existing industry processes, augment how they engage with their customers, and accelerate the speed at which they deliver their products and services. This webinar will look at how these digital strategies facilitated by the IoT are reshaping those industry segments that are both asset-rich and focused on services rather than products.


    The webinar will also highlight key challenges companies are facing in implementing a digital strategy. One key challenge Bob will discuss is the implementation of a common system for innovation that provides scale, agility at a manageable cost and why IDC believes that SAP Leonardo is the solution that will overcome the challenge.
