The Corona pandemic has changed much of what we had actually imagined and planned for this year. When CIOmove partner Accenture released its Technology Vision 2020 in February, COVID-19 was already an issue, but not one that we thought would virtually shut down the world for months.
Now we all know that it’s one of the biggest challenges most of us have faced in our lifetime.
“In just a few short months”, Accenture writes, “it’s transformed people’s lives on an unprecedented scale, impacted every industry, and altered the course of companies’ growth. But the pandemic has not slowed innovation—it’s amplifying it to historic levels.
At this time, the full extent of COVID-19’s impact on human life, the global economy, and enterprises is not yet known. But already, it has become an extraordinary catalyst for change. The need for innovation is greater than ever, driven by new challenges that are more disruptive than most have ever faced. The question for enterprises is: How fast can you act? In light of this new reality and new imperative, we are revisiting our 2020 Technology Vision trends and exploring how they will impact people and business in the post-COVID world.”
