Right from virtualisation to machine intelligence, blockchain, and dark analytics, this report analyses the trends that could disrupt utilities in the next 18-24 months. While experimenting with new trends is a high-stakes endeavour, there’s no sitting on the sidelines when it comes to some of these trends.
Cutting through the hyperbole to identify those most critical and disruptive innovations is particularly important for utilities. To realise that potential, utilities should become a “kinetic enterprise” where the only constant is change.
Deloitte annual Technology Trends report analyses the trends that could disrupt businesses in the next 18-24 months. CIOs who can harness the possibilities of these technologies will be better positioned to shape the future of their business.
The theme of this year’s Tech Trends report is the kinetic enterprise, an idea that describes companies that are developing the dexterity and vision required not only to overcome operational inertia but to thrive in a business environment that is, and will remain, in flux.
