Tech Vision 2021 Global Launch | Accenture

  • The world is hungry for a new kind of leadership 
    • Amid the challenges of 2020, two truths became evident. More companies than ever have embraced the axiom that every business is a technology business, and they’ve ignited a new era of exponential transformation as technology continuously reshapes industries and the human experience. 
    • Now, as we begin shaping our post-pandemic reality, companies must learn to master change.
    • 2–3x revenue growth 
      • A recent study revealed that digital leaders (the top 10 percent of companies leading technology innovation) achieve 2–3x revenue growth as compared to their competitors—a widening divide that Accenture calls the “Digital Achievement Gap.”
  • Leadership Demands Technology Leadership 
    • We always talked about how technology would come to change the world, and now that enterprises across industries have accelerated their digital transformations all at once—it has. The era of the fast follower is effectively over. Perpetual change is here to stay, and leaders must not only embrace it, but catalyze it.
  • Leaders Don’t Wait for a New Normal, They Build It
    • As the saying goes: The best way to predict the future is to invent it. Prioritizing technology is essential to ensuring the enterprise doesn’t fall behind. However, true leadership will come from companies embracing radically different mindsets and models. The world has been beset by sweeping change and demands leadership that thinks boldly in response.
  • Broaden the Horizons of Leadership 
    • Technology makes the boldest ambitions achievable, but people are the north star that provide vision and direction. As they pioneer the new normal, enterprises are poised to have an outsized impact on the world around them—and financial success will only be one measure of leadership.
  • Our Moment is Now: 2021 Technology Trends 
    • Companies are no longer strictly competing for market share; they are competing to build their vision of the future faster than the competition. Success will depend on their ability to accelerate and master change in all parts of their business, which in turn will be a direct function of the technology decisions they make today.
  • Completing the picture 
    • Accenture’s Technology Vision report comprises a three-year set of technology trends, currently including trends from 2020 and 2019. It’s important to recognize that each year’s trends are part of a bigger picture. Tracking how they evolve over time offers a glimpse into how they may continue to grow in the future.
