Technology: Outlook and Opportunities 2016
Managing innovation, growth and shareholder expectations
The technology sector continues to innovate and consolidate. This brings new products and services to customers and challenges to service providers as they choose how to invest and cost-effectively grow their market share. All of this must be done within regulatory constraints and with proper vigilance for data security.
Increasingly, opportunities to integrate services and form technology partnerships present themselves. Scaling and integration of new offerings presents new challenges to organisations large and small – diversification is ever evident – offering multi-service, multi-platform services in the market place, using metrics to control cost and quality and realise target return on investment. As it becomes possible to perform more tasks using laptops, tablets and smartphones, the importance of providing fast, safe, seamless experiences for customers is paramount; designing apps that are intuitive, empowering and experiential for mobile users and which complement the web platforms.
How will the design of our smartphones, tablets, laptops and newer sensor driven accessories evolve?
Strategically, businesses need to keep their product and service portfolio vital and attractive while embracing emerging possibilities from the Internet of Things and 5G rollout from 2020.
