COVID-19 brought the world to a stop, but levelheaded executives aren't resting. After a global transition to work-from-home accomplished over a matter of weeks, many leaders are already looking to the post-pandemic world – grappling with a recession, shattered supply chains, economic uncertainty, and consumer unease. In response, IT organizations are looking to tune up by re-imagining their budgets, ridding themselves of superfluous systems, and accelerating adoption of critical capabilities. But what are the areas that count? Where can IT make the most difference in a post-pandemic world? After enabling an unprecedented change in the way people work, how can IT make use of its new clout to lead and fast-track needed changes in the enterprise?

In today's virtual session, IDC's Joe Pucciarelli, Group Vice President of IDC's IT Executive Program and two leading CIOs will take a deep dive into the following questions:

·        How will decisions you are making now impact future IT and technology capabilities within IT and across the organization? 

·        How should you revise your business/IT project plan?  What timelines should you be using: the rest of 2020, into 2021, or 2022?

·        What changes do you need to make to your budget planning? In what ways have you already adjusted the budget?

·        How have your cybersecurity planning, implementation, and budget changed? What changes should we still be making?

·        What tools or information — scenario planning, data sources, internal surveys — are you using to plan for the future?

Find out what your peers are doing to adapt to and take advantage of the "next normal." Explore the challenges that are on every IT executives' mind, and come away with insight, answers, and a path forward.
