Technology and innovation continue to advance at a blistering pace, bringing promising new developments in every field for 2013, 2014 and the foreseeable future. While this presents a challenge for many organizations looking to drive positive change management in an era of constant flux, it’s one we remain proud to help management teams and international market leaders surmount worldwide. What many global trends experts won’t tell you: The best benefit of being one of the world’s most-quoted futurists and strategic innovation speakers isn’t just the early access often provided to new technology and business advancements. It’s actually the fact that no two days are the same, as we frequently find ourselves researching new developments in every industry that promise to completely reinvent the way in both corporate enterprises and trade associations operate – not to mention customer and consumer expectation alike.
Wondering which new areas are among the most ripe for change in the coming years? Several sectors immediately spring to mind, including the following:
- Health Care
- IT: Cloud and Big Data
That said, many more sectors are quickly producing just as compelling innovations – so many, in fact, that’s it hard to summarize them in a single Top 10, 20 or even 50 list. Bearing this in mind, on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013, the single biggest tradeshow event in North America for technology vendors of all kinds, including software, hardware and apps developers, publishers and distributors, we’ve had the chance to speak with top media outlets about a variety of emerging and evolving topics from streaming music, movies and media to cloud computing, social networking, next-generation TV sets and more. Rather than produce a dense whitepaper outlining every new development in each field in detail, we thought it simpler to summarize our thoughts here, and provide links to relevant articles where appropriate – all of which provide in-depth opinion and analysis, including a handy snapshot of our thoughts.
