Deloitte’s annual Technology Trends report examines the ever-evolving landscape of technology put to business use. Once again, we’ve selected ten topics that have the opportunity to impact businesses over the next 18 to 24 months.
This year’s theme, Elements of postdigital, examines the convergence and controlled collision of five forces – Analytics, Mobile, Social, Cloud and Cyber – as businesses move closer to achieving the possibilities of the Postdigital EnterpriseTM, where all five forces are mature, implemented, integrated and baked-in versus bolted-on.
Each of the 2013 trends is relevant today. Each has the momentum and potential to make an impact. And each warrants timely consideration. Forward-thinking organisations 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.
