Exponentials watch list
Science and technology innovations on the horizon
THOUGH BUSINESS APPLICATIONS FOR NANOTECHNOLOGIES, ENERGY SYSTEMS, biotechnology, and quantum technologies may seem light-years away, in reality they are approaching rapidly. In the next three to five years, expect to see business use cases emerge and pioneering deployments accelerate around these once-futuristic technologies.
With this in mind, increasing numbers of CIOs, CTOs, and business strategists are already taking exploratory steps with these and other exponential technologies. They are sensing and scanning disruptive forces and putting in place deliberate, disciplined innovation responses. These leaders understand that waiting for exponentials to manifest as mature technology trends before taking action may be waiting too long.
