KPMG’s report, top 10 technologies for business transformation, outlines the technologies that respondents to the 2019 Technology Industry Innovation Survey believe have the greatest potential to drive future business transformation and long-term value. Follow-up questions asked which technologies their companies are actually investing in now, and which ones they plan to invest in three years from now.
Amazingly, given about 20 different choices, respondents chose the same top 10 technologies for each list. Internet of Things (IoT) reigned in all three lists and artificial intelligence (AI) ranked no less than third. Robotic process automation (RPA) and robotics (including autonomous vehicles) placed in the top five. These consistent results show that tech companies are indeed “walking the walk” and investing in technologies they believe to be transformative.
