Our lives are being impacted daily with new technologies springing forth, which has changed the way we live, work, do businesses, shop online and offline, travel, engage in relationships and so on. The video you are about to watch emphasizes the new technologies that will be trending in 2018.
Let’s talk about couple of the technology trends which actually started in 2017 but should pick up steam in 2018.
First of all, everybody is hearing about Bitcoin but there is a technology under Bitcoin called Blockchain, which is the general ledger distributed one, not a single source of information. That system could also serve for many other industries, not only for the Cryptocurrencies. Blockchain should become mainstream in 2018.
The second technology is AI. Artificial intelligence apps and devices started picking up a lot of adoption in 2017, like Alexa, Siri, and Chat Bots on customer support and shopping sites. Now, this should become mainstream and your applications on your desktop and mobile devices, including the connected devices in your home – all these technologies will have intelligence. Artificial intelligence is going to pick up steam in 2018 as well.
Finally, I would say digital transformation. Now, most things are going to go digital which impacts all segments of your business including your customer, employers, processes and your products. You want to embrace a new method of digital engagement with your customers, use new tools for collaboration within your team and across your teams. And finally, it is about improving process efficiencies with digital technology and then transforming your products.
So embrace Blockchain or a new technology, embrace artificial intelligence, embrace business intelligence, and all these things that we are looking forward to in 2018. Thanks for watching.
