KPMG recognises the importance of innovation to the technology industry and the global economy as a whole. Our publication series, The Changing Landscape of Disruptive Technologies, provides perspectives about global technology innovation trends, barriers to commercialising innovation, and insights into tech innovation leading practices.
Today, technology innovation is core to all kinds of businesses around the world and impacts our society greatly. We are living in one of the most disruptive periods of tech evolution since the Internet first entered the scene decades ago. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is quickly unfolding as the evolution of artificial intelligence, IoT, and robotics move firmly into the mainstream and upturn media, transportation, healthcare, security, retail, telco, and many other fields.
As reported recently in KPMG’s Global CEO survey, leaders across different industries have a greater focus on the tremendous economic and social power that has resulted from the tech industry’s leadership style and innovation. More than ever the leaders of tomorrow need to embrace change in a proactive, effective way. The acceptance to fail fast and pivot quickly, will spark the creativity that provides a competitive edge. The promise is a better future as global technology innovation developments unfold at a faster pace.
