Deloitte’s ninth annual Tech Trends report once again shines a light on the disruptive technologies, and this year, we invite you to look at emerging technology trends from a different angle.

Dive deeper into our 2018 Tech Trends report on Deloitte Insights

As digital reality, cognitive, and blockchain continue to redefine IT and business, organizations should look to move beyond vertical or horizontal approaches to new technology. Ideally, strategy, technology, and operations should work together, in harmony, across domains and boundaries.

This year, we invite you to look at emerging technology trends from a different angle. When technologies act in unison, we no longer see the enterprise vertically (focused on line of business or isolated industries) or horizontally (focused on business processes or enabling technologies). In the symphonic enterprise, the old lines become blurred, thus creating a diagonal view that illuminates new business opportunities and creative ways of solving problems.
