Emerging technology solutions

Using emerging technologies for a competitive advantage

Emerging technologies create significant social and economic impacts and what the next decade – even five years – will bring is almost too hard to envision now.

Emerging technologies of the past are now very much embedded into the way we do things: in the workforce, industry and personal lives. For example, before mobile phones, household landlines were the norm. This key solution revolutionises humanity, and uptake – or replicas – soon became global. More recently, the internet of things, data collection and monetisation, robotics and nanotechnology and gamification are the next focus.

In a fast-paced world, experiencing new pressures and different ways of working like never before, we will soon see the next wave on the horizon.

Incorporating emerging technologies into business processes and client offerings can provide the competitive advantage, growth and profitability with your business needs. And our clients involved in this space are at the cutting edge of technology transformation and improvements.

Our extensive experience supports our clients in strategic planning, road mapping and investment evaluation, and ensures they are able to leverage these emerging technologies and thrive in the market. We are skilled at helping businesses take ideas and concepts and make them a commercial reality and success.

50% of tech growth worldwide is because of emerging technologies such as IoT software and hardware, AR/VR, SaaS+PaaS, robotics, AI, big data, and next-gen security. 1

What to consider when implementing new and emerging technology solutions

  • I know we need to incorporate new technologies to stay ahead of our competitors, but which ones?
  • How would I implement emerging technology effectively?
  • What customisation can I incorporate into these technologies?
  • Is it worth doing? What is the expected ROI? Can we measure the benefits?
  • Which solution is going to be best for our firm?
  • How long will it take to start delivering value?
  • Can you help us secure funding?
  • What is the deployment model, and how can we ensure the best partner selection?
