Drive Digital Transformation with Innovation - Ready to Innovate?Digital transformation (DX) is now mainstream, yet IDC sees more massive changes to come in the 2018 to 2020 period as digitally fueled disruptors roil and reshape businesses and industries. During this period, transformation initiatives will shift into overdrive, leading to the development of a fully scaled DX economy. Lines are being drawn in the sand, separating industry laggards from "digital-native enterprises" that can harness the power of technology to multiply innovation and accelerate their enterprise’s appetite for transformation. The clear mandate for every enterprise in the next several years is to reimagine and reconstruct itself to compete in the increasingly digital economy that's platform-powered and ecosystem-enabled.

In that context of continuous emergence, enterprises must adapt at accelerated innovation pace to the scale, scope, and speed of DX. As an integral part of an overall business strategy, DX and community-powered innovation is an iterative process encompassing the entire enterprise.

In this executive exchange, hear experts from IDC, Red Hat and Intel share their observations and learnings in working with enterprises making use of open source technologies to rapidly build prototypes, do DevOps, and adopt agile development.
