Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions 2011
Welcome to the 10th edition of Deloitte's Predictions for the technology, media & telecommunications (TMT) sector. This annual publication presents Deloitte's view of the major trends over the next 12-18 months that are likely to have significant medium- to long-term impacts for companies in TMT and other industries.
Over the last ten years, the TMT sector - and its impact on how we work, live and are entertained - has changed markedly. In fact, there have been too many important developments to list here. But it is worth remembering that the World Wide Web is just 21 years young in 2011; that in 2001 many countries had not yet rolled out national broadband services; and that only three years ago analog cellular networks were still functioning in some of the largest mobile markets.
Another key trend over the last ten years has been convergence: the technology, media and telecommunications sectors are now more interconnected and interdependent than ever before. With that in mind, this year's Predictions report is for the first time being published as a single report, rather than three separate ones. Deloitte's view is that developments in each sector are now so inextricably linked that TMT executives need easy access to the key trends in all three sectors.
Also for the first time, each of this year's Predictions are available as videos, podcasts and an app as well as written text. Learn more.
We hope you and your colleagues find this year's Predictions for the TMT sector useful; as always, we welcome your feedback.
