Overview

Technology Tipping Point

As technology advancements continue to accelerate at an unprecedented rate - dramatically disrupting the workforce - companies that equip employees, partners and consumers with new skills can fully capitalise on these innovations.

Those that do will have unmatched capabilities to continuously create fresh ideas, develop cutting-edge products and services, and disrupt the status quo.

The Accenture Technology Vision 2016 investigates five trends behind a ‘people-first’ approach: Intelligent automation, liquid workforces, the platform economy, predictable disruption and digital trust.

THE EVOLVING VISION

The five trends from our Technology Vision 2016 represent an extension of Accenture’s core stance: “every business is a digital business”, first introduced in our 2013 report. Our 2016 Vision focuses on the importance of people in the digital world. Each of this year’s trends maps back to previous years, charting the paths that digital businesses have pursued as they adapt and grow.



ABOUT TECHNOLOGY VISION

Research Methodology

Every year, the Technology Vision team partners with Accenture Research to pinpoint the emerging IT developments that will have the greatest impact on companies, government agencies, and other organizations in the next three to five years. The research process began during 2015 with gathering inputs from the Technology Vision External Advisory Board, a group comprising more than two dozen experienced individuals from the public and private sectors, academia, venture capital, and entrepreneurial companies. In addition, the Technology Vision team conducted interviews with technology luminaries and industry experts, as well as with nearly 100 Accenture business leaders.
