Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Predictions 2021
We can’t talk about 2021 without mentioning COVID-19. All of our TMT Predictions topics for this year were shaped to some extent by the pandemic. We hope that during 2021, we will be closer to the end of the pandemic than the beginning, focusing on thriving in the future rather than responding to the present.
Across multiple parts of the Technology, Media, and Telecom (TMT) ecosystem, observers have been repeating some version of the comment, “There have been five years of change in five months due to the pandemic.” COVID-19 has been a catalyst—an unwelcome one, but still a catalyst—for needed changes across the TMT landscape.
In a chemical reaction, when a catalyst is removed, the reaction returns to its slower rate. Will the post-pandemic world see change, disruption, and innovation decelerate from current levels? Or will the acceleration induced by COVID-19 persist for the long term—perhaps even permanently?
Welcome to TMT Predictions 2021.
