Signature Series: Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2023

Speaker:  Naresh Singh, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

Key take-aways

  • The Gartner Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2023 span three core themes: optimize operational sustainability, scale productivity and customer value and pioneer productizing individualism.

  • Sustainability: To enhance sustainability, organizations need a new sustainable technology framework that increases the energy and material efficiency of IT services, enables enterprise sustainability through technologies like traceability, analytics, renewable energy and others.

  • Superapps: A superapp combines the features of an app, a platform and an ecosystem in one application. It not only has its own set of functionalities, but it also provides a platform for third parties to develop and publish their own mini-apps on. By 2027, Gartner predicts that more than 50% of the global population will be daily active users of multiple superapps.

  • AI Trust, Risk and Security Management: Organizations that spend time and resources now on managing AI trust, risk, and security will see better outcomes in terms of AI adoption, achieved business goals and both internal and external user acceptance.

  • Industry Cloud Platforms: Industry cloud platforms provide a portfolio of capabilities spanning SaaS, PaaS and IaaS, providing industry-specific sets of modular capabilities, to support // specific industry business use cases. 

  • Wireless Value Realization: As enterprises scale digital, they will require a spectrum of wireless solutions to cater for all environments, from Wifi in the office, through services for mobile devices, to low-power services and even radio connectivity. Gartner predicts that by 2025, 60% of enterprises will be using five or more wireless technologies simultaneously.   

 
How Digital Should Your Enterprise Be?

Speaker:  Apoorva Chhabra, Principal Analyst, Gartner

Key take-aways

  • Start with median benchmarks. For example, the level of adoption for artificial intelligence/machine learning, cloud-based applications and agile methods.

  • Use optimisation to find your balance points by creating more drivers to digital adoption.

  • Compare yourselves to industry leaders using the benchmarks.

  • Take digital sensitivity into account when deciding how digital you would like to be.

  • Evolve into a tech organisation by creating revenue channels from your digital initiatives.

Signature Series: Flourishing in the Rejuvenated Work and Talent Landscape

Speakers: Eyad Tachwali, Sr Director, Advisory, Gartner

 

Key take-aways

  • We are now seeing a rejuvenated workforce and the pre-pandemic working styles are now being challenged.

  • To flourish in this new landscape, three performances matter the most - employee, collaboration and the office.

  • Implement a human-centric work design that provides people autonomy to achieve outcomes.

  • Intentionally combine “async” and “synchronous” work modes based on the team’s collaboration goal.

  • Reinvent the office value proposition to emphasize “we space” — remodel as needed.

  • Rejuvenating employee, collaboration and office performance can increase talent retention, attract top-performing talent and improve overall business performance.

 

Don't Just Add to Your Customer Experience - Subtract From It

Speaker:  Pulkit Pandey, Principal Analyst, Gartner
 

Key take-aways

  • You can’t add your way to a better customer experience forever. A new approach would be to start considering ways to subtract from your customer experience.

  • Personalization is not always better. According to the 2022 Gartner Personalization Survey, 66% of customers will block or stop doing business because of hyper personalized messages.

  • Understand the customer journey and subtract unnecessary steps to provide a seamless experience.

  • Appoint an individual in your meetings, particularly the ones on customers, to suggest subtraction ideas, to balance out the many addition ideas.

  • Determine how you will recognize and reward subtraction ideas.


Signature Series: Gartner’s Top Strategic Predictions for 2023 and Beyond — Seizing Uncertainty

Speaker:  Gene Alvarez, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner
 

Key take-aways

  • Through 2027, fully virtual workspaces will account for 30% of the investment growth by enterprises in metaverse technologies and will “reimagine” the office experience. “If the investments in the metaverse go heavily toward reimagining the work experience, then we can change what it means to collaborate at work."

  • By 2025, organizations that remediate documented gender pay gaps will decrease women’s attrition by 30%, reducing pressure on talent shortages. “Pay is a major driver of attrition, and true equity reduces toxic work culture. Look beyond moral arguments to systems and processes.”

  • By 2025, without sustainable artificial intelligence (AI) practices, AI will consume more energy than the human workforce, significantly offsetting carbon zero gains. “AI is a double-edged sustainability source, and it will be critical that CIOs are able to measure gains versus losses.”

  • By 2026, citizen-led denial of service (CDoS) attacks, using virtual assistants to shut down operations, will become the fastest growing form of protest. “Virtual personal assistant capabilities make activism easier against organizations.”

  • By 2025, shareholder acceptance of “moonshot” speculative investments will double, making them a viable alternative to traditional R&D spend to accelerate growth. “Speculative technology investments are a must-have. IT can champion the ‘moonshot’ culture.”

Signature Series: CIO and Technology Executive Agenda for 2023

Speakers:  Andy Rowsell-Jones, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner
 

Key take-aways

  • CEOs are investing to deliver digital “dividends” in four areas: digital capabilities, information technology, people and culture development, and product enhancement.

  • Executives are not satisfied with digital execution: 59% of executives say the time to complete initiatives is behind expectations, and 52% of executives say the time to realize value is behind expectations. 

  • To accelerate digital dividends, reconcile execution siloes and catalyze unconventional talent and practices.

  • “CEOs know very well that digital acceleration cannot be achieved without the technological contribution of the entire enterprise. That is why they want to increase the digital dexterity of all employees.”
     

Signature Series: CEO Concerns 2022-23 – Implications and Actions for CIOs

Speaker:  Partha Iyengar, Distinguished VP Analyst, Gartner
 

Key take-aways

  • “In 2022, the CEO’s world is inverted and confusing. Growth is still the number one priority, but it matters less than in previous years.”

  • “Globalization is continuing but changing as power shifts between major nations - also known as ‘reglobalization.’”

  • “Navigating these unusual, unpracticed conditions, CEOs will be slower, ponderous and less certain. CIOs can win if you can help the CEO to be quickly decisive. Your CEO needs proactive tech-related business ideas and insights from you.” 

  • “Over a decade, CEOs' views on data have not advanced as much as we might hope. CIOs must take charge to amplify the role of novel data analysis to better diagnose the unusual situation and find superior solutions.”

  • “‘Digitalization’ is becoming a more commonly voiced CEO term, representing a blent of internal and market-facing tech applications. CIOs should ease digital efforts away from demand generation and towards operating model delivery efficiency.”
     

AI Strategy - From Plan to Execution

Speaker:  Shubhangi Vashisth, Director Analyst, Gartner
 

Key take-aways

  • “Only 14% of organizations had deployed AI in 2019; however, that number rose to 19% in 2020 and it now stands at 27%, almost doubling from two years ago.”

  • “AI strategy isn’t merely a technology strategy; in fact, the cultural, ethical and business dimensions are harder.”

  • “Create a succinct AI strategy document that synthesizes your vision and potential benefits, mitigates risks, captures KPIs, and outlines best practices for value creation.”

  • “Prioritize use cases based on business value and technical feasibility. All use cases must be scrutinized carefully because every AI project requires an iterative approach.”
