About the IDC future enterprise awards

Digital transformation (DX) is evolving to digital-first. Future-forward organizations are already ushering in a digital-first state for 2022, and beyond.  Similarly, IDC’s awards have matured. This year, our categories and selection criteria recognize not just leadership in digital transformation, but also redefines what DX authority looks like in the Future Enterprise.

Over the past five years, the series has drawn over 5,000 nominations and 500 winners worldwide—a five-fold increase in reach and influence since its inception in the Asia/Pacific region in 2017.

Now in its sixth year, it is the gold standard of DX recognition, expanding its reach to the rest of the world, gathering aces in technology innovation. It draws pace-setter organizations, and it calls to all who seek digital-first success in a world where next is now.


Digital Transformation (DX) is the application of new technologies that radically changes processes, customer experience, and value. DX enables organizations to become Digital-Native Enterprises that support innovation and digital disruption.

DX leverages 3rd Platform technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data, and social, coupled with organizational, operational, and business model innovations to create new ways of operating and growing businesses.


The Future Enterprise is IDC’s vision for how organizations must organize and invest to participate in increasingly digitally-centric markets. It is a framework for fostering a digitally-native culture, one that enables new synergies in ecosystems, generates revenue from empathy at scale, and demonstrates an ability to adapt operating models to complex customer requirements—all of which are enabled by an intelligent, empowered, and agile workforce.
