New technologies are causing trends to evolve in digital transformation. Digital transformation aims at optimizing and accelerating operations and improve the overall performance of a business in all of its aspects through the digitalization of its activities, processes, competences and models.

Gartner just released a report disclosing top trends in Digital Transformation for 2019. The study reveals that top performing businesses will increase spendings in the following areas:

  • Business Intelligence and Data Analytics
  • Cyber-Security
  • Cloud Services
  • Core System Transformation and Improvements
  • Digital Marketing and Digital Business Initiatives
  • Customer Experience
  • Artificial Intelligence

Forbes is making some digital technology adoption predictions, and so is Gartner, revealing strategic technology trends.

The most innovative technologies are being considered to solve all kinds of business problems, some of which have been demonstrating much efficiency for several years already, while others are being used mostly in a conceptual or exprimental manner and progessively entering a usable stage. We'll most commonly hear about Artifical Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Augmented Reality (AR), the Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), or the Blockchain.

Top businesses are hoping to compete with even bolder initiatives by combining these technologies in various ways to achieve their business goals. According to Forbes and Gartner, in 2019 we can expect important investment increases to integrate these technologies and let various implementations take shape:

  • Augmented and Predictive Analytics using AI and ML
  • Virtual Mirrors and Product Configurators provided by AR
  • AI and NLP driven Chatbots
  • Autonomous Things relying on AI and IoT
  • Logistic and Supply Chain Management with Digital Twins, AI and IoT
  • IaaS, PaaS, SaaS on the Cloud

Digital transformation strategy is challenging since the adoption of new technologies is not happening as quickly as their emergence or developement. The possibilities they offer are growing fast and their impact on a business model and culture is tremendous, and for that reason, it may not be easy to clearly identify which opportunity is to bring the most promising results. Business transformation being a fundamental necessity in a competitive market, it's always a matter of priority, and more than often identifying quick wins is a good start.
