The digitization of business and society remains at the very top of the agenda in 2016. Long valued primarily for the role they play in enabling various business processes, digital technologies are fast becoming the key performance factor for a growing number of enterprises.

Today’s prime innovation drivers – Cloud Computing, Big Data, Mobility and Social Media – are collectively giving rise to radically new business models and revolutionizing countless markets. So how can organizations best strategically respond to the transformations taking place so as to fully exploit the emerging market opportunities?

Security & Privacy

In today’s digital age, keeping data secure is a huge challenge, and one which places great demands on IT infrastructure and applications. Companies not only need to prevent unauthorized access to customer data and communications, but also safeguard sensitive R&D information.

Cyber-criminals are becoming more and more adept at using technology for their dubious purposes, and nowadays even state institutions are increasingly lancing cyber-attacks at corporations. This adds up to tremendous demand for new approaches to cyber-security and comprehensive encryption.

So where are the threats coming from, and how can they best be thwarted?

The Internet of Everything

By the year 2020, over 30 billion machines and devices will be on the Internet of Everything, exchanging data and communicating with their environments via high-speed broadband networks.

They will be capable of dynamically learning from and responding to environmental factors, thus extending their functionality. Networked, intelligent devices are paving the way to streamlined, sustainable production, while also providing fertile soil for the birth of countless smart services. Market researchers at Gartner are referring to this as nothing less than “the most disruptive era in IT history”.

So what approaches are other companies pursuing, how successful are they, and how can one best leverage the Internet of Everything for maximum benefit?

Disruptive Technologies

Digital technologies continue to evolve – not just incrementally, but by leaps and bounds. These “disruptive” technologies are capable of completely rewriting the rules and transforming established markets in the wink of an eye. This means that companies need to closely monitor and evaluate emerging technologies long before they reach market maturity. Only by identifying disruptive technologies in the making can companies anticipate their probable market impact and make the right decisions to secure a competitive edge.

3D printers, autonomous systems, sensors and augmented reality are among the hottest innovations soon to fundamentally change the world we live in.
