New solutions are augmenting our skills and capabilities to new horizons never imagined before, connecting humans and machines, and positively impacting productivity (always on), efficiency (business at the speed of “now”) and customer engagement.

  • Telecoms, Networks and Devices in Europe: What to Expect in 2018 – and Beyond Recorded: Jan 10 2018 57 mins
    John Delaney, Chris Barnard. Andy Hicks, Chrystelle Labesque, Francisco Jeronimo
    The telecoms industry in Europe is undergoing transformation. Telcos are striving to transform themselves into digital service providers, and to transform their networks into flexible, service-oriented platforms. Another wave of change is on the way in 2018, as the first set of standards for 5G networks emerges, and as new types of connected device grow in importance. At the same time, the Enterprise space is undergoing through the most significant change in many years: software-defined networking and SD-WAN reshape the technology and the market; vendors transform in the wake of the move to subscription models; the move from premise to cloud and primacy of customer experience disrupt unified communications; and mobility is ever more important in the 24/7 economy.

  • State of the Market Q3 2017: IT Spending Review and Outlook Recorded: Nov 16 2017 63 mins
    Stephen Minton, Vice President, Customer Insights & Analysis
    2017 is shaping up to be a good year for IT spending. New technologies including IoT, robotics, and AR/VR are expanding the overall market, while traditional categories migrate to cloud and mobile platforms and businesses ramp up their investment in analytics or social collaboration to boost productivity. Digital transformation initiatives are driving an uptick in project-oriented spending, as end-users seek to leverage technology innovation into business benefits. A stable global economy has also helped, with emerging markets rebounding while mature economies have continued to post stable growth despite wild cards like Brexit. While economic risks remain, the short-term outlook has improved in recent months. However, beneath this picture of apparent calm and positive growth, seismic shifts are taking place which will reshape the industry for the next decade and beyond.
    In this IDC Web conference, Stephen Minton will review the latest IT spending data and leading economic indicators for IT buyer behavior, alongside updated market sizing and forecasts from the IDC Worldwide Black Book.
  • Understanding Infrastructure Consumption by Service Providers Recorded: Oct 19 2017 41 mins
    Kuba Stolarski, Computing Platforms, and Deepak Mohan, Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service
    The IT infrastructure market has seen an era of rapid transformation in recent years. The growth of public cloud in the enterprise IT segment, the emergence of new suppliers into the IT infrastructure market – both OEMs and ODMs – and the shift in spend from traditional IT suppliers to new ones, are all important changes affecting suppliers and buyers in this market. Within this transforming market, one segment of particular interest is the service provider market, who are operating an infrastructure platform to deliver IT and non-IT services to end customers in an "as a service" model.

    The service provider segment has been the fastest growing segment of buyers in the server and storage hardware market for the past few years. But the pattern of IT infrastructure consumption by service providers is slowly diverging from that of traditional IT enterprises, who have historical formed the largest segment of buyers in this market. This includes shifts in preferences of storage and server systems used in their deployment, as well as shifts from owned infrastructure to pay-as-you-go infrastructure (like IaaS and PaaS) for their computing and storage needs. IDC's Cloud Infrastructure Index is a recent study that brings together qualitative and quantitative insights into consumption by the top hardware buyers in the service provider market.

    This IDC Web conference provides a summary of key insights from this study, and introduces a framework that helps understand IT infrastructure related decisions by the growing service provider market.
  • Buyer Evolution for Optimizing Managed Digital Services Recorded: Oct 12 2017 55 mins
    David Tapper, Program Vice President, Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services
    Firms are under growing pressure to transform into digital enterprises. Just consider that nearly 10% of U.S. firms expect to have an application provisioned in one day or less using cloud services. Or that enterprises need to respond to more event-driven situations, such as real-time price competition, product recalls, and cyberattacks. In addition to forcing enterprises to reevaluate the types of outsourced and managed services they consume, these types of market pressures are forcing service providers and outsourcers to make fundamental changes in their capabilities and offerings.

    This Web conference will use the IDC MaturityScape framework to evaluate the buyer evolution in utilizing managed digital services (including cloud, mobile, social, analytics, IoT, and cognitive) as well as the expectations that buyers will have of their service providers when it comes to helping them become mature users of these services.
  • Unlocking Opportunity: Understanding the Role of the Unlocked Smartphone Recorded: Oct 5 2017 30 mins

  • Patient Engagement for Digital Transformation Recorded: Sep 19 2017 50 mins
    Mutaz Shegewi, Research Director, Provider IT Transformation Strategies, IDC Health Insights
    Patient engagement technologies play a vital role in the digital transformation of healthcare. These hold the unique potential to transform care-seeking consumers into new patients and empower existing patients to become more involved in their health and care. Tools, processes, and environments that nurture the adoption of patient engagement technologies can positively impact cost, quality, access, patient safety, and patient experience across the continuum of care. Therefore, patient engagement technologies have been mandated as an essential component of policies since the introduction of the Triple Aim and evolved into some of the most important and recent frameworks advancing health IT (e.g., the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, MACRA, QPP, MIPS, and APM). Regulatory mandates, competitive market forces, and emergent changes in health stakeholders are driving a shift to a new era of value-based and consumer-driven healthcare. It is necessary healthcare providers come up with innovative patient engagement technology strategies that also shift in response to these changes. However, despite widespread industry usage and market buzz, patient engagement is for the most part an unclear concept. There is no consensus on a clear way to plan and execute patient engagement or implement its technologies. Therefore, there is a growing need for guidance and evidence to support the application of patient engagement and its technologies to impact the digital transformation of healthcare.
