Predictable Disruption

Fast-emerging digital ecosystems — think precision agriculture, the industrial Internet or smart cities — are creating the foundation for the next big wave of enterprise disruptions by straddling markets and blurring industry boundaries. For a prime example, look at the automotive industry and "connected" cars. The technology in connected cars is fueling a rich platform ecosystem that is becoming one of the next major hubs of innovation. Now, companies across industries are joining the ecosystem to offer digital services and capabilities such as mobile hot spots, remote diagnostics, safety and security, infotainment, and much more.

According to a World Economic Forum 2016 report, the cumulative value of digitization could reach $100 trillion over the next 10 years. With digital pervading everything, it's bringing with it ubiquitous and unprecedented amounts of change.

Recently, the Accenture Technology Vision 2016 report found that fostering a people-first approach – equipping employees, partners and consumers with new skills to fully capitalize on technology advancement – will be key to unlocking success in today's disruptive digital economy.

The analysis is partly based on a global survey of more than 3,100 business executives. The survey found that 86 percent of respondents anticipate the pace of technology change will increase at a rapid or unprecedented rate over the next three years. Yet, most corporate cultures are not keeping up with technology advancements, creating a state of digital culture shock.

In this slideshow, Accenture has highlighted five trends, fueled by the people-first approach, that provide a roadmap to digital success.
