2021

DX QUANTUM LEAP

Technology Universe is full of surprises, as it reinvents itself at a varied pace, making it difficult to predict even for the tech tellers. Last year Tech Tellers posed the question “What If" which helped many CXOs take the quantum leap in their DX journey.

Posed with an exceptional scenario of unplanned and unheard situation of the lockdown, priorities changed for many enterprises. They were left with limited options, to either wait and crumble down or bounce back with ability to adapt, accelerate time to market by recalibrating their DX journey with unflinching support of their human resource.

Micro Focus along with IDC presents its flagship event Technology Horoscope 2021, under the theme – “DX Quantum Leap” to discuss the brave new world and key trends by the analysis acquired by research and surveys conducted across the globe.
