1. Catching up on the missed growth   #catchingupongrowth

Business growth in 2017 was below expectations. The top priority for enterprises in 2018 is to monetize the innovations and catch up on the missed opportunities. They are also preparing their organization to be more efficient and productive as the new business paradigm expect just that from them.

2. Converging core IT and digital   #convergingcoreITwithdigital

Though digital technologies remain the top priority, enterprises have also clearly stated their intentions of creating a new technology platform by overhauling the core IT and digital. 25-30% enterprises are planning to build a converged digital platform that is well integrated across vertical layers and horizontal domains.

3. Beginning of the second digital wave   #secondwaveofdigital

Enterprises are willing to explore the new wave of digital (IoT, AI/ ML, Bots) after the first SMAC wave becomes mainstream. This new wave has started evolving with around 60% of enterprises planning to focus in 2018 (may be in small flirting ways). The core IT needs to gear up further to become ready for a bigger play in the data economy.

4. Broad-basing digital to multiple process domains    #goingbroadwithdigital

Enterprises are taking digital to multiple process domains of the organization. Though customer engagement has been the top focus, other domains of workplace, IT optimization, management dashboards, and operations streamlining are also gaining focus. Interestingly, supply chain integration has been lagging behind.

5. Going deep by invoking multiple pillars   #goingdeepwithdigital

On one hand enterprises enterprise plan to take digital broader to more process domain, on the other hand they are planning to adopt multiple digital technologies (both waves) for the process domains. They plan to go deeper into the chosen process domains by invoking multiple pillars of digital.

6. IT spend growth momentum to revive back   #ITspendrevival
