Accenture Technology Vision 2019: The post-digital era is upon us
Today, digital technology is a strategic priority for every organization. In the Accenture Technology Vision 2019 survey of more than 6,600 business and IT executives, 94 percent of respondents said the pace of technology innovation in their organizations had either accelerated or significantly accelerated over the past three years.
Given their collective prioritization of digital technology, every organization will eventually converge on the same turning point—one where digital-era technology, which began as a differentiating advantage, is now an expectation. In other words: The digital playing field will eventually even out.
So, what will this new, “post-digital” world look like? It will be characterized by organizations looking for the next competitive edge.

The latest California State Pulse Survey insights have arrived! With homelessness a growing concern in California, and a wide variety of programs, pilot initiatives and proposals to address the issue proliferating around the state, we asked Californians to share their views on the importance of using data to better understand the extent and nature of homelessness. For example, would access to a statewide database of individuals and families experiencing homelessness help government officials better understand the underlying causes?
Accenture is undertaking short public surveys several times per year on a range of topics. The polls tap the views of 1,000 voting age adults and are shared to help inform public debates and promote understanding of Californians' opinions on emerging issues.
As a technology leader and digital innovator, Accenture is dedicated to working with state and local government agencies to develop transformative ways to enhance performance and implement cost-effective initiatives that bring value to citizens. We are proud to support Code for America and applaud their vision for simple, accessible, easy to use government services to improve citizen outcomes.

Case in point: Consortium C-IV – Working with 39 California counties, Accenture helped integrate human services to streamline the management of multiple benefit programs for caseworkers and customers. The welfare departments reduced 205 processes to 58 and creating common procedures for the four counties. Then, based on these improvements, they developed an integrated, Web-based solution to manage all of their functions, with a single database to house information for all four welfare departments.
Accenture engages in a variety of corporate citizenship activities across California—a commitment that reflects our firm-wide belief in giving back to the communities where we work and live.
