IDC Has Been Changing How the World Thinks About the Impact of Technology for 57 Years
The past: The company’s history began in 1964, when Patrick Joseph McGovern sold his car to fund a startup — International Data Corporation (IDC).
The present: Today, IDC is the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets.
With more than 1,100 analysts in over 110 countries worldwide, IDC offers global, regional, and local expertise on technology and industry opportunities and trends. IDC’s analysis and insight helps IT professionals, business executives, and the investment community to make fact-based technology decisions and to achieve their key business objectives.
The future: While futurists and analysts can offer some exciting (or downright scary) visions for the future of technology and science, there are no factual guarantees. However, an all-pervasive digital world and rapid, constant technological development have become the new normal. With that in mind, we can be certain about one thing: The pace of digital transormation and the development of the future enterpise won’t slow down.
IDC doesn’t have some kind of crystal ball, but we do have a combination of expertise, experience, and people with insight into vast amounts of data. And that’s all we need to continue our mission into the digital future — a future that will see IDC on the moon!
