In 2030, every organisation will be a technology organisation and as such, businesses need to start thinking today about how to future-proof their infrastructure and workforce, according to a report published by Dell Technologies.
The research, led by the Institute for the Future (IFTF) alongside 20 technology, academic and business experts from across the globe, looks at how emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality and cloud computing, will transform our lives and how we work over the next decade. The report, titled The Next Era of Human-Machine Partnerships also offers insight on how consumers and businesses can prepare for a society in flux.
For the first time in modern history, global leaders cannot predict how their industry will fare further down the line. According to Dell’s Digital Transformation Index, 61 per cent of APJ business leaders have experienced significant disruption to their industries as a result of digital technologies. And more than half of businesses believe there is a possibility their company will become obsolete within the next three to five years.
