IDC shares expert directions on digital transformation
Provides strategic guidance of digital transformation to organisations
IDC's leading ICT analysts are on hand throughout GITEX Technology Week to provide strategic guidance to organisations that are setting out on a journey of digital transformation.
The global ICT research and consultancy services firm is participating as a Supporting Partner of the 37th edition of GITEX, to provide its expert input into the GITEX Vertical Days program.
Jyoti Lalchandani, IDC's group vice president and regional managing director for the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META), says: "IDC is delighted to once again be participating as Supporting Partner at GITEX Technology Week. Now in its 37th year, the event has long served as a platform for tech pioneers, business leaders, and IT professionals to gather and share ideas about leveraging the world's most advanced technology solutions for a more competitive future. To this end, senior IDC analysts will feature prominently throughout the event, presenting their insights as part of the GITEX Vertical Days program."
Serving up in-depth analysis and real-life success stories, this program is aimed at demystifying the use of emerging digital tech to overcome the unique challenges encountered across different industry sectors. Today, IDC's research director for software in the META region, Megha Kumar, will be participating in a special healthcare-focused panel discussion that will focus on identifying vulnerabilities and keeping patients safe in an industry where cybersecurity breaches can potentially kill.
On Tuesday, IDC's director of telecoms and IoT in META, Paul Black, will lead discussions during an executive roundtable on digital transformation efforts in the finance sector; while IDC's associate vice president for research in META, Ranjit Rajan, will present his perspectives on the very latest developments within the region's rapidly emerging Smart City landscape.
IDC's participation at GITEX Technology Week 2017 extends beyond these sessions, with the firm also exclusively giving away a series of industry-focused reports that examine ongoing developments within the worldwide manufacturing, financial services, smart cities, and connected vehicles markets.
