TECHNOLOGY VISION 2016


Overview

The primacy of people in the digital age

Winners in the digital age know success comes from more than just completing a checklist of technology. It hinges on people. Keeping up with changing technology is vital. But today, it’s just as important to evolve the organization’s corporate culture. In a disruptive world, workforces must be built to adapt, to embrace new business strategies and continuously learn new skillsets.

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 end goal? Integrating change into your organizational DNA through the most effective means possible. Your people.

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.
