Virtually all of enterprises' new strategic investments through 2020 will be anchored on 3rd platform technologies and solutions, with the foundation of the 3rd platform forcing a massive structural and cultural shift across different verticals. As businesses look to gain competitive advantage in this digital era, they are likewise evolving in how they engage with customers; the speed at which they deliver products and services; how they innovate; the reliability of their operations; and their overall resiliency.
Since IDC first predicted the industry's remarkable shift to the 3rd platform in 2007, a list of Predictions have been released annually, with 8 out of 10 Predictions coming true in the last five years. As we enter the most critical 'Innovation Stage' which is driven by a new wave of core technologies -- Innovation Accelerators -- that radically extend the 3rd platform's capabilities and applications across all industries, these predictions offer valuable guidance on how to move forward. With so many disruptive changes to the market, the question now stands: will you adapt or be left behind?
