Tech Trends 2020

Which technologies have the most potential to impact your business?

Several of this year's tech trends are responses to persistent IT challenges. Others represent technology-specific dimensions of larger enterprise opportunities. All are poised to drive significant organisational change.​

Introduction

Tech Trends 2020 identifies the trends Deloitte believes will disrupt businesses in the next 18 to 24 months. Based on insights from Deloitte subject matter specialists, the world's leading organisations, academic and industry luminaries, and leading startups, venture capitalists, and technology providers, Tech Trends 2020 explores five key trends, shares examples from organisations on the front lines, and takes a look at what may come, beyond the next horizon.

Trends evolve in unexpected ways. And often, the most interesting opportunities happen at the places where they intersect. Several of this year's trends represent fascinating combinations of macro forces and other technology advances. For instance, digital twins represents the culmination of modernised cores, advanced cognitive models, embedded sensors, and more - a recipe that is in itself a trend, even as it builds on evolving individual technologies.

We hope Tech Trends 2020 offers the insights and inspiration you will need for the digital journey ahead. The road from today's realities to tomorrow's possibilities will be long and full of surprises, so dream big and architect accordingly.
