IDC Directions 2021 Canada


As we navigate the challenges of a changing world, digital resiliency will be critical for Canadian organizations transitioning to the next normal. Over the next two years, leading enterprises will focus on digital resiliency: the ability to rapidly adapt to business disruptions, leverage digital capabilities to accelerate business operations, and automate processes to quickly take advantage of changed conditions and capitalize on new market opportunities. By 2022, their workforces, products and services, anywhere and everywhere, must be based on a digital delivery model or leverage AI/ML-based digital augmentation to remain competitive.

Thank you for joining us on the afternoon of April 22 as IDC Canada's thought leaders presented their expert insights, intelligence and guidance for finding success in the next normal. This virtual event is focused on the Canadian tech market and explores how digital transformation and the pandemic are changing both businesses and customers in Canada. Key topics addressed include: the future enterprise, digital resiliency, digital innovation, and the future of digital infrastructure. We also explore the status of Canadian organizations on the road to recovery, look at shifting priorities and provide an update on the status of spending in the Canadian tech market. There was also a CXO panel focused on real-life examples of Canadian companies using tech to transform themselves and become more resilient for what lies ahead. In addition, we've added a popular feature from our past events in a new virtual format - there was a Live AskIDC Q&A panel at the conclusion of the event, where the audience could pose questions about the Canadian tech market to our expert analysts. 

With 65% of global GDP digitalized by the end of 2022, let IDC help ensure that you are positioned to help organizations achieve the digital resiliency required to not just survive business disruptions, but to thrive. Did you know that the majority of large Canadian businesses are already thinking beyond the pandemic? Join us on April 22 to better understand what's happening in the Canadian market and how you can help your customers succeed in 2021 and beyond.

This year's IDC Directions Canada Virtual Event is being offered complimentary to all registrants (a C$200 value).
