Recently CIOs and business executives from various sectors have been hearing from Mark White, CTO of Deloitte Consulting Technology, as he delivers a review of the Deloitte 3rd annual Technology Trends report.
White sees the role of Deloitte Consulting Technology as about eminence and innovation.
“It’s to help create awareness of our technology centric solutions and services, and to help partners innovating the next thing we ought to do in the marketplace,” he said.
One of the outputs is the technology trends report
. The characteristics of the report are...
1. It’s business-led, technology enabled. It’s less electronic and more about business issues.
2. It’s intentionally written for 18-24 months out... this budget year/next budget year, and it’s somewhat pragmatic.
3. It can’t include a trend unless there are at least three general case examples.
The report includes two categories: disruptors and enablers.
“Ours may or may not be disruptive technologies per the Christenson definition
,” said White. “We do believe that if deployed as described in the report there is the potential for positive disregards to cost, capabilities, and in some cases, in regards to their business models.”
