Participants – IT leaders from a broad swat of commerce industry, universities, and government agencies of all sizes – draw on their own experience and knowledge to describe strategic and strategic approaches to key challenges. How can IT overcome old habits and technical overhauls, redesign the workforce, and reshape its own mandate?
The need for these questions has only increased in the wake of the global epidemic. IT not only needs to resume business in general, but also help businesses quickly in the new environment.
Epidemic challenges have taken different forms in various industries, with many organizations around the world facing significant headwinds over the past year. For example, the Global IDC Wave Survey, a survey of 967 respondents in September 2020, found that 60% of experienced responders failed a supply chain plan and predicted failure after an initial epidemic.
According to participants in our CIO think tank, as companies try to recover from the effects of the epidemic, IT leaders are taking more responsibility for driving growth and profits. This is to get the “all hands on deck” organizations back into recovery and development mode.
