Tech Trends 2019: Beyond the digital frontier

Ten years of insights

Deloitte’s 10th annual Tech Trends report identifies those trends that are likely to disrupt businesses in the next 18-24 months, including advanced networking, intelligent interfaces, NoOps in a serverless world, and more. Special to this year’s tenth edition: Tech Trends reflects on a decade of disruptive change and demystifies the future of digital transformation.

Our tenth annual Tech Trends report analyses the top trends impacting decision makers in the coming year. Starting with a reflection on the last decade, we detail the disruption driven by nine macro forces.

As we look ahead, the report explores how 2019 technology trends are giving rise to new operating models, redefining the nature of work, and dramatically changing IT’s relationship with the business.
