March month saw a jam-packed room full of tech-heads and tech-savvy entrepreneurs, all eager to hear what Deloitte SA had to reveal in their 10th Annual Tech Trends Report.
The morning started out with introductions from key players in Deloitte and moved quickly into the main keynote speaker, Hans van Grieken, world-renowned EMEA Technology Research & Insights Leader at Deloitte.
We received a 360-degree view of what Deloitte believes has shaped the tech environment so far over the past decade and what is still to come. We got inside views into businesses who are using amazing tech to grow and prosper themselves, and more important, others.
WHAT ARE THE KEY EIGHT TRENDS?
MACRO TECHNOLOGY FORCES AT WORK
Taking into account nine macro forces – analytics, cloud, digital, core modernization, the business of tech, cyber, cognitive, blockchain and digital reality – there is much to be said for what has been and what will still come
A company that considers deploying machine learning and using tools such as cognitive tech will see a great difference in the long run – let the data drive your business
