Deloitte’s annual Technology Trends report examines the ever-evolving landscape of technology put to practical business use. Once again, we’ve selected 10 trends that we believe have the opportunity to impact business over the next 18 to 24 months.

This year’s theme, Elements of postdigital, looks more deeply into the five forces of postdigital enterprise that we introduced last year: analytics, mobile, social, cloud and cyber. As we have worked more deeply with these elements of postdigital, we’ve discovered that the formulae of these combined elements are likely to have the most significant impact on business.

We invite you to view the brief three-minute overview video, and explore each of the 10 trends through the links below. 

Our 2013 trends are grouped into two categories:

Disruptors are opportunities that can create sustainable positive disruption in IT capabilities, business operations, and sometimes even business models.

Enablers are technologies in which many CIOs have already invested time and effort, but which warrant another look because of new developments or opportunities.

Each of the 2013 trends is relevant today. Each has significant momentum and potential to make an impact. And each warrants timely consideration. Forward-thinking organizations should consider developing an explicit strategy in each area – even if that strategy is to wait and see. But whatever you do, step up. Provoke and harvest disruption. Don’t get caught unaware or unprepared.
