Accenture Technology Vision 2019 – Part 1

Now, we invite you to explore the 2019 Technology Vision, the annual forecast of the technology trends most affecting businesses in the next few years from our colleagues in Accenture Labs.

There’re significant synergies between Technology Vision and the Fjord Trends, and we invite you to read more and explore.

Persistent change, challenged assumptions, and disruption are now the norm, rather than the exception, in business and society. And these indicators will only accelerate and multiply as we progress into the future. The lightning-speed of change, driven by technology, is taking us from the digital age toward a new reality, one we call the post-digital world. Accenture’s 2019 Technology Vision lays out the inarguably bold and complex path that businesses will encounter in the coming years, as the next wave of powerful technologies ushers in the new post-digital era.

What will this new, “post-digital” world look like? It will be characterized by companies looking for the next competitive edge.

DARQ technologies will be the next source of differentiation and disruptive technology. As these technologies reach maturity and converge, they will let businesses expand upon their digital capabilities to build intelligent and highly customized, in-the-moment experiences that help shape the lives of their customers, business partners and employees.
