Deloitte’s 14th annual Tech Trends report explores the impact of emerging technologies on groundbreaking innovations and foundational business areas. Stories of pioneering organizations show what’s happening now, describe what’s new, and project what could be coming next.

Eyes to the sky: Three enduring eternities

The history of IT has been a steady evolution of pioneering innovations in interaction, information, and computation, the three enduring eternities of modern computing.

Through the glass: Immersive internet for the enterprise
Technologies such as augmented and virtual reality are transforming the metaverse from specialized tech to enterprise tool—potentially paving the way for new business models

Opening up to AI: Learning to trust our AI colleagues
While the value of artificial intelligence is now undoubtable, the question has become how to best use it—and that often boils down to how much workers and end users trust AI tools

Above the clouds: Taming multicloud chaos
To simplify multicloud management, enterprises are beginning to turn to a layer of abstraction and automation that offers a single pane of control.


Feet firmly on the ground: Three foundational forces

Existing systems and investments—represented by the business of technology, cyber and trust, and core modernization—need to integrate with pioneering innovations so businesses can seamlessly operate while they grow.

Flexibility, the best ability: Reimagining the tech workforceOrganizations have been competing for a limited supply of tech talent. A winning long-term strategy instead creates, curates, and cultivates new talent.

In us we trust: Decentralized architectures and ecosystems
In an environment of ever-increasing mistrust, blockchain and Web3 could power “trustless” systems that decentralize data to rebuild trust.

Connect and extend: Mainframe modernization hits its stride
Instead of completely replacing mainframe systems, businesses have begun looking for ways to extend the functionality of mainframe systems by linking them to emerging technologies


Widening the aperture: Exploring the next frontiers, from infotech to xTech

Historically, “technology” has served as shorthand for information technology. But an extended set of technologies—or xTech—is on the horizon. We anticipate that six emerging technology disciplines will eventually rival IT in their impact on business innovation.
