Jun 27, 2019

The State of Emerging Technology report explores:
  • The majority (51%) see themselves as “curious but cautious” about the latest technologies.
  • The appeal of emerging technologies tends to be tied to an organization’s particular industry, for instance, 3D printing is of great interest in the medical industry, but not so much in other industries.
  • Practical interest in AI is strong in two areas that are key to corporate performance: increasing operational efficiency and improving the quality of customer interaction.
  • The top barriers to adopting emerging technologies are lack of funds, skills shortage, a desire to see proven success, and management’s resistance to change.
