As enterprises and business leaders worldwide grapple with the top technology predictions for 2019 and beyond, how should they be prioritizing technology selection and implementation in 2019 becomes the next big question.
A recent Gartner report highlighted how technical professionals are confronted with complex technology ecosystems and how they must overcome this complexity to create solutions that will transform their organization. The report also suggests these professionals must not only stay informed about these trends in their core discipline but also understand the trends in adjacent disciplines.
This will also mean that CEOs and CIOs will need to identify opportunities and challenges in the most important trends across key technology areas.
2019 will, therefore, be the year for the leaders to guide technical professionals in their organization to quickly understand, integrate and operationalize these technologies. Planning based on these most highly anticipated and broad set of technologies, services and infrastructure is essential for thriving in an era of exponential technology change. By pragmatically addressing these, leaders can certainly create a stronger and more potent foundation.
