Technology is embedded in everything we do, improving the ways we live, work, and experience the world. But there’s a larger transformation at play–a shift beyond digital into an era where tech is built into every single interaction. Accenture’s 2018 Tech Vision digs into the IT trends that are rapidly reshaping not just daily life, but society as a whole, and allowing businesses in every industry to reimagine what’s possible.

Disruption courtesy of emerging technologies is nothing new, in fact, we predicted it. But this latest transformation is unique. For the first time, the change is a two-way street. People aren’t just using products and services, but feeding information and access back to them. To deliver integrated innovation, companies need a profound level of insight into people’s lives. For intelligent enterprise, this level of connection—and this degree of trust—require a new type of relationship. It’s not just business. It’s personal. And it’s how leaders will redefine their company based on the company they keep.

These five technology trends are transforming society and creating the foundation for future enterprise growth:

  1. Citizen AI
  2. Extended Reality
  3. Data Veracity
  4. Frictionless Business
  5. Internet of Thinking
