Each of the trends relates to one or more key themes for business: protecting and preserving past and future investments, building the right solutions for the right stakeholders at the right time, and delivering value for the changing environment of both internal and external customers.
Theme 1: Protect your investment
To ensure sustained impact from your technology investments, be:
Deliberate. Stop all uncontrolled experimentation with insufficient direction. Efforts should be intentional and produce sound results for daily use.
Realistic. Calculate the ROI of projects by factoring in the necessary protective measures from the start.
Forward-looking. Tailor innovations with reuse in mind while securing your rights (i.e., intellectual property and ownership of creations) and a durable position in the future.
How to use these technologies to achieve your CEO’s and CIO’s goals for 2024 and beyond
Examine the trends’ potential relative to your organization’s specific situation, factor them into your strategic planning for the next few years, and adjust your business models and operations appropriately.
The trends are mutually reinforcing, not isolated occurrences. Combine the technologies to fit your strategy, transformation intentions and benefit.
