Report claims leveraging the five post-digital forces will affect business

The five forces of post-digital affecting Australian business are Cloud, mobile beyond smartphones and tablets, social, analytics and cyber defence.

This is according to the 4th Annual 2013 Tech Trends Report: Elements of Postdigital, by consulting firm, Deloitte, which highlighted the top technology trends that are anticipated to have a significant impact for the CIO over the next 18 to 24 months. According to Deloitte Consulting technology lead partner, Robert Hillard, the combination of analytics, mobile, and social has never been more powerful.

“Businesses can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines. Cloud allows marginal investment experiments with substantial business value and cyber is important for risk-intelligent innovation.

“All Australian industries will be affected and are taking advantage of these forces to incrementally improve their existing processes and offerings, in order to reshape their operating models, business models and marketplaces,” Hillard said.

He claimed the post-digital era, reflects a ‘new normal’ for business and a new basis for competition and the report outlines the core technology trends for which forward-thinking organisations should consider in developing an explicit strategy.

“Whatever organisations may decide, they do not want to be caught unaware or unprepared. In Australia, CIOs are finding that the scale of the opportunity and threat is significant and leveraging these opportunities is important,” he said.

The trends, divided into two categories, include disruptors – opportunities that can create sustainable positive disruption in IT capabilities, business operations, and business models, as well as enablers – technologies in which CIOs have invested time and effort, but warrant another look.

The top disruptor trends for 2013 include:

  • Catalysing value from the elements of mobile, social, analytics, Cloud and cyber.
  • The enterprise potential of mobile is greater than today’s smartphone and tablet apps.
  • How work gets done is no longer constrained by 19th century platforms.
  • Inherent, pervasive and persistent design opens the path to enterprise value.
  • Ubiquitous connected computing is straining the underlying foundation of the Internet.

The top enabler trends for 2013 include:

  • Drive engagement by embedding game mechanics in day-to-day business processes.
  • Revving up data, hardware, deployment and business model architectures at the core.
  • Fuse people and technology to discover new questions and new answers in data.
  • Dealing with security – If you build it, they will hack it.
  • Learning the business of IT
