Deloitte Tech Trends Report 2013 - 28/06/2013


Deloitte Tech Trends Report 2013:  Reinventing the technology wheel

Last year, both Apple and Google Play surpassed 25 billion app downloads. As of December 2012, 13% of all Internet traffic originates from mobile devices. These facts proclaim the rapid growth of mobile technology as has been observed in the 4th Annual Tech Trends Report of Deloitte ‘Elements of Postdigital’, which identifies the top 10 technology trends believed to have the most probable impact on business over the next 18 to 24 months.

“The objective is to reflect how evolving technology landscape and volatile market forces are affecting the complex nature of our clients’ business problems,” said Patrick Laurent, partner in advisory and consulting and technology & enterprise application expert. “We must embrace the postdigital era. Our report outlines the core technology trends that have the most potential, for which organisations should consider developing an explicit strategy.”

The report examines the convergence and controlled collision of five forces: analytics, mobile, social, cloud and cyber. Deloitte’s annual report takes a look at the drivers of the ever-evolving landscape of technology that can be put to use by businesses as they move toward a more postdigital enterprise. At the core of achieving this vision, the trends are divided into two categories: ‘Disruptors’ are opportunities that can create sustainable positive disruption in IT capabilities, business operations, and sometimes even business models, and ‘Enablers’ are  technologies in which many CIOs have already invested time and effort, but which warrant another look because of new developments or opportunities.

The top 10 technology trends for 2013 include:


  • CIOs as the Postdigital Catalyst: Catalysing value from the elements of mobile, social, analytics, cloud and cyber.
    • Mobile Only (and beyond): The enterprise potential of mobile is greater than today’s smartphone and tablet apps.
    • Social Reengineering by Design: How work gets done is no longer constrained by 19th century platforms.
    • Design as a Discipline: Inherent, pervasive and persistent design opens the path to enterprise value.
    • IPv6 (and this time we mean it): Ubiquitous connected computing is straining the underlying foundation of the Internet.


  • Finding the Face of Your Data: Fuse people and technology to discover new answers in data – and new questions, too.
  • Gamification Goes to Work: Drive engagement by embedding game mechanics in day-to-day business processes.
  • Reinventing the ERP Engine: Revving up data, hardware, deployment and business model architectures at the core.
  • No Such Thing as Hacker-proof: If you build it, they will hack it. How do you deal with that?
  • The Business of IT: After reengineering the rest of the business, IT’s children deserve some shoes.

“The elements of postdigital will play an important role and fundamentally reshape businesses. Every industry may be affected by the underlying digital forces. Every market may be reshaped by their controlled collision. The mobile explosion in the consumer world cannot be denied. ” Patrick Laurent explains.
