Scale, Trust, and Impact: Building a Successful Digital-First Strategy

IT spending is at an inflection point… by 2023, the percentage of enterprise technology spending on digital initiatives will grow to more than 50%!

Many businesses have implemented digital transformation strategies over the past five years and are now looking ahead to the next phase – building digital strategies to operationalize and capitalize on these initiatives.

As record IT spending returns to more sustainable levels, business leaders and investors will scrutinize annual IT spend and look for areas, such as cloud infrastructure, professional services, and software development, where they can reduce investment. Going forward, enterprises will need to be smart and disciplined about their digital strategies and focus on sustainable growth – and sustainable IT investment.
