Change in the digital age is commonplace, but few could have predicted the changes 2020 has brought. As a CIO and IT leader, you must create the future for your organization in these unprecedented times. Gartner's Top Strategic Tech Trends for 2021 highlight nine trends that have transformational potential.

Trend Highlight: Hyperautomation

Hyperautomation has been trending at an unrelenting pace over the past few years, mainly because of the pent-up demand for operationally resilient business processes. As business executives demand a path to digital operational excellence, there is often a backlog of requests from business stakeholders for automation using one or more technologies.

Hyper automation is irreversible and inevitable. Everything that can be automated will be automated. Competitive pressures for efficiency, efficacy and business agility are forcing organizations to address it. Organizations that resist the pressures will struggle to remain competitive or to differentiate.
