Had the past few years not already blazed the trail, 2022 would be a standalone wild ride. Certainly, there’s been some normalization of life, but we certainly are not back to normal. Inflation is cresting as quickly as hardware supply chains cycle through stall outs. “Back to work” continues to redefine itself. Organizations and consumers engrain an increasing expectation for personalization, precision, and immediacy. Yet, in a year that could be defined by nothing less than volatile-we see resourcefulness, a desire to do more with the data and technology that’s out there, and a serious shift in how predicting the future translates to preparing for it. And that is where 2023 rolls out the red carpet for agility and efficiency.
What guideposts has 2022 created to help us evaluate our current use of data and technology?
As experience and innovations hurdle forward-organizations’ success will depend on their ability to make sense of these lessons and seamlessly oscillate between global reach and hyper-local delivery. That proficiency hinges on reliable, real-time connectivity between data, technology, and outcome.
As we work backwards from the efficient outcomes we desire-our greatest opportunity to accelerate advancement starts with data. The leaders of 2023 will focus on lowering barriers to use data-thereby establishing a gateway to unlock technology, new capabilities, and success.
What tentpoles will redefine efficient use of data (and thus, technology) in 2023?
Whether we’re talking cloud, edge, or our traditional offices-or any technology platforms… their value is all dependent on data. Without it, or without it in an efficient way, the significance of these transformative building blocks fade. In a constantly changing, hyper-local, globally distributed world-how do we get data into the right hands to at the right time to do brilliant things? The leaders of 2023 will reevaluate past assumptions and lean into interoperability, agility, and new approaches to efficiently access and use data. They will support a new wave of expectations and solutions to fuel innovation, empower employees and consumers alike, and make the world we all live in a better place one bit and byte at a time.
