Deloitte's annual Technology Trends report examines the ever-evolving landscape of technology put to practical business use. It identifies the 10 technology trends that we believe have the most potential to impact business over the next 18 to 24 months.
The theme of the 2013 report was Elements of post-digital. It looked more deeply into the five forces of postdigital affecting business that we introduced in Tech Trends 2012: cloud, mobile, social, analytics and cyber.
As we have worked more deeply with these elements of post-digital, we find that it's the combination of these five forces that makes the largest impact, the most significant advantage and the biggest difference to business.
We invite you to view the brief overview video and explore the full report.
Our 2013 trends are grouped into two categories:
