Deloitte's annual Tech Trends reports examine the ever-evolving technology landscape and those trends that have the potential to transform business, government, and society. Written from the perspective of the CIO, these reports explore technology trends that have the opportunity to impact organizations - across industries, geographies, and sizes today and in the future. The 2016 report identifies eight trends that reflect macro forces fueling innovation: digital, analytics, cloud, the renaissance of core systems, and the changing role of IT within the enterprise, balanced with the implications of cyber risk--security, compliance, regulatory and compliance, quality, and safety. The theme for the report was inspired by the opportunities today's CIOs--across industries, geographies, and company sizes--have to shape every corner of their organizations by transforming "business as usual." The 2015 report examines nine current technology trends, ranging from the way some organizations are using application programming interfaces to extend services and create new revenue streams, to the dramatic impact connectivity and analytics are having on digital marketing; and from the evolving role of the CIO to changing IT skill sets and delivery models.
