Technology has unequivocally transformed businesses in every industry.

As the digital playing field levels, what will companies do to stand out above the rest? And what will the world of work look like in the post-digital era?

The Accenture Technology Vision offers a look at what will form the foundation of the post-digital era.

TechVision 2019 highlights the top five technology trends that will have the greatest impact on the world of business in the next three to five years. It also challenges leaders on how they can set themselves apart and look for the next competitive edge as the digital playing field takes shape.

1. DARQ Power: Understanding the DNA of DARQ
New advancements in Distributed ledgers, Artificial intelligence (AI)extendedReality and Quantum computing allow for the reinvention of entire industries. DARQ technologies will be the next source of differentiation and disruptive technology. As these technologies reach maturity and converge, they will let businesses expand upon their digital capabilities to build intelligent and highly customized, in-the-moment experiences that help shape the lives of their customers, business partners and employees.

2. Get to Know Me: Unlock unique consumers and unique opportunities
Tech-driven interactions create a tech identity for every consumer. It’s the key to understanding the next generation of consumers and delivering individualized, experience-based relationships in the post-digital era.

3. Human + Worker: Change the workplace or hinder the workforce 
People are incorporating technology-driven capabilities alongside their existing skills and experience to do new kinds of work, in new ways. Now, companies must adapt their technology strategies to support the realities of working in the post-digital age.

4. Secure US to Secure ME: Enterprises are not victims, they’re vectors 
Ecosystem-driven business connections increase companies’ exposure to risk. Leaders are recognizing that just as they collaborate with entire ecosystems to deliver best-in-class products, services and experiences, security must be part of that effort as well.
