The theme of this ninth edition of Tech Trends is to orchestrate strategy, technology, and operations to work together. When these emerging technology trends act in unison, we no longer see the enterprise vertically (focused on a line of business or an isolated industry) or horizontally (focused on business processes or enabling technologies). With a diagonal view we suggest the possibility of new business opportunities and creative ways of solving problems.
Below is a synopsis of the nine trends that we believe will have most impact on Australian based entities, based on the global trends which have been ranked by relevance, timeliness and readiness by the technology leaders in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
