From year to year, the situation in this company is getting worse. I used to think that DXC had a future but now I’m aware that the company is just barely keeping afloat. It makes no sense for talented people to stay in such a company. The question is how long can leadership keep the company afloat before it finally sinks?

Simply either leave DXC (if you can) and flourish, if you near the retirement stay and collect the pay check, but if you're staying do the bear minimum, learn as much from the inhouse IT Training, hand over as much work as possible to your co-workers and if possible keep quiet and in the background.
Don't be a kean beaver and upset the apple card, likely to get management and co-workers back up and they will warrant your WFR / redundancy from this cesspit of a company
Agreed - as a former DXC employee, that is my main takeaway from the experience. When I was working at DXC, I was nervous about jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Now in retrospect I realize that DXC WAS the fire. Why did I stay on for so long? Post-DXC, I'm making more money, learning better skills, and getting treated so much better.
Agree it will drift along for a few more years as clients run down contracts (why change legacy service provider, leave them there until legacy is turned off)
However it is now getting to the point that having DXC on your CV/Resume (unless you are a grad getting first job experience) is starting to hurt future career progression - why were you at DXC and/or why did you stay so long when clearly it was hurting your future career prospects and there were so many other opportunities at more progressive organisations
IT will stay afloat for at least 5 more years , as Mike S needs to suck all the life out of it. There are too many of us that are capable of doing so much more, but were stuck in role at DXC where we do almost nothing or are swamped with bulsh*t tasks
