Enterprise reboot: The current and future state of emerging technologies
There is a dramatic shift in how businesses are approaching emerging technology as they grapple with the challenges of COVID, including changing customer expectations, shifting budgetary priorities, and new operating imperatives. According to a report from KPMG International and HFS Research, executives are saying:
- Spending cuts for technology are likely to be short term, and they expect to increase technology investment in the next 12 months.
- The current volatile environment is driving clarity for technology investments. Executives are now focusing on “have to have” technologies with less cash to spend.
- The combined use of emerging technologies is much more beneficial than using only one in isolation.
This interactive What now. What next. series discussion offers an overview of the report findings and how you can drive more value and greater return from your technology investments.
