Blink and you could miss it. The speed at which technology advances and upgrades can seem overwhelming. In the kinetic enterprise, the only constant is change. The 2017 Tech Trends report from Deloitte outlines how companies presently must sift through the promotional noise and hyperbole surrounding emerging technologies to find those solutions offering real potential.
According to Deloitte, to realise that potential, they should become ‘kinetic’ organisations – companies with the dexterity and vision required to thrive amid ongoing technology-fueled disruption.
The report identifies key trends that will likely revolutionise enterprise technology in the next 18-24 months. In the last chapter the report explores an even more distant future, describing four key areas that blend science and applied technologies, including nano-engineered materials, energy storage, synthetic biology and quantum optimisation.
