It’s one of the most ambitious and important projects an organization can undertake to future-proof its operations. It’s also become a key differentiator in which companies will merely survive and which will truly thrive in the years ahead. We’re talking about a “digital core transformation,” and it is a truly massive undertaking. That’s why IDC created the “Best in Future of Digital Infrastructure Awards” -- a way of recognizing organizations that have demonstrated innovation and excellence in preparing for the “next normal”. And on this episode of Future Enterprise, you’ll meet three companies that have done just that -- successfully leveraged digital technologies to dramatically improve the way they do business. Together, Joe Pucciarelli, Group Vice President and IT Executive Advisor at IDC and Rick Villars, IDC’s Group Vice-President of Worldwide Research, will hear from: Jim Diorio, Senior Vice-President of Global Technical Services at Tapestry Inc; Steve Samarge, Chief Technology Officer, Information and Digital Systems at Toyota Financial Services; and Bob Bender, Chief Technology Officer at Founders Federal Credit Union. Their stories will inform, entertain, and even inspire anyone who may be thinking about undertaking a similar transformation for their business.
For the better part of the past 50 years, it’s been purely a pipe dream for most CIOs: the ability to make everything available everywhere, any time, and from any device. But that promise is finally within reach thanks to a dramatic transition that’s happening before our very eyes, as businesses move away from traditional hardware, software, and data services into a world of autonomous operations, ubiquitous deployment, and cloud-centric technologies. This episode of Future Enterprise, proudly presented by IDC, features the story of a beloved American clothing company that’s gone from cutting fabric to cutting edge, by embracing The Future of Digital Infrastructure. Host Joe Pucciarelli, Group Vice President and IT Executive Advisor, is joined by John Hill, the Chief Digital and Information Officer at Carhartt, for a fascinating exploration of how the company has evolved over its 132 year history. With the help of Rick Villars, IDC’s Group Vice-President of Worldwide Research, they’ll get into the assets, applications, and investments that are needed to facilitate the shift to digital, and provide a roadmap for other organizations that are still stuck in the old 3-5 year upgrade cycle.
