Accenture Defense Technology Vision 2015

Five trends will stretch the digital boundaries of defense


This year, the Accenture Technology Vision 2015 explores how some leaders are flexing their digital muscle in new ways to improve operations and processes, and to form new connections with employees and customers. The defense industry is no exception. We explore five technology trends that show how defense is stretching its digital boundaries.


As part of the Accenture Technology Vision 2015, Accenture surveyed 2,000 business and industry executives, including 162 public service leaders, across nine countries to gather insights into the adoption of emerging technologies. The data showed that 74 percent of those in public service agree that industry boundaries will dramatically blur as platforms reshape industries into interconnected ecosystems. This blurring may affect defense from a collaboration perspective, but also by introducing potential threats.
