With the technology industry shifting to a data-driven future, emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, wearable devices and artificial intelligence will create new opportunities for industries to evolve.
Innovation will remain a critical differentiator for the tech sector. A significant number of companies will continue to leverage M&A investments to gain access to emerging technologies and talent, in addition to investing in R&D.
As emerging technologies continue to change business models, security will continue to be a challenge. Tech companies will continue to invest in the development and implementation of Information Security and IT risk management technologies to manage security issues proactively.
