Executive Summary for CxOs

Disruptions enabled by emerging and maturing technologies are impacting business and society with increasing pace and depth, and this trend will persist in the next few years.

Increasing automation will cause off-shoring to diminish and favor a ‘Gig Economy’.

Digital Shockwaves will interact with each other in unexpected ways, thus creating a complex and uncertain environment, which will be ripe for opportunity if appropriately anticipated, understood and acted upon.

The most significant business disruptions will come from a combination of the connected sensors, devices and objects (Internet of Things), coupled with new ways to analyze, action and monetize the resulting data streams.

New business models will emerge both within and across organizations. Traditional organizational silos will disappear, simplifying trust and contractual agreements.

Significant new business opportunities will arise emerging as transient business moments or from applying Deep Learning to trends & outcomes.

Industrial Data Platforms will help incumbents to digitally reinvent their leading roles.
