According to the latest global technology trends report from Accenture, companies can often feel overwhelmed by the pace of technology change, experiencing “digital culture shock” at the prospect of keeping up with the competition. As technology advancements accelerate at an unprecedented rate – dramatically disrupting the workforce – companies that equip employees, partners, and consumers with new skills can fully capitalize on these innovations.

In a companion survey of more than 3,100 business and IT executives worldwide, Accenture found that 33 percent of the global economy is already impacted by digital. Even further, 86 percent of survey respondents anticipate the pace of technology change will increase at a rapid or unprecedented rate over the next three years. However, businesses can begin to implement a People First approach to equip employees, partners and consumers with new skills to fully capitalize on innovations.

On Wednesday, June 8, Michael Biltz is available to discuss the technology report and give tips on how companies can embrace digital to empower their workforce to continuously do more with technology and also generate bigger and better business results.

From Automation to Digital Ethics. This year’s report outlines the new technology trends that forward-thinking C level executives will use to position their organizations to drive growth, rather than focusing on cost-cutting and efficiency improvements.
