Educating today’s digital natives — including today’s millennials and Generation Z — requires a new paradigm of pedagogy. In fact, Marc Prensky, inventor of the term “digital natives,” hypothesized that the massive proliferation of digital technology globally in the last two decades has changed the way students deliberate and assimilate information, making it hard for them to excel academically if schools still use the outmoded pedagogy methods of days gone by. Therefore, students raised in a digital, media-saturated ecosystem require media-rich digital content to learn effectively.
This IDC FutureScape presents the IDC Worldwide Robotics team’s analysis of key drivers relating to robotics and drone technologies, and how these drivers are likely to shape the development of robotics and drones in the planning horizon of 2019 through 2024. The development and deployment of robotics (including drones) in various industries continued to accelerate in 2017, with double-digit growth based on IDC research.
With PTC’s $70M acquisition of generative design software vendor Frustum announced today, and the continued focus on expanding generative design capabilities by Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, and Siemens, manufacturers have multiple options for AI and machine learning-infused CAD and CAE (i.e. simulation).
This IDC Financial Insights study presents the top 10 predictions — in no particular order — for payment leaders to consider as they think through their upcoming plans. A common set of key drivers are included so that technology leaders can look at the broader conditions beyond the predictions.
This year, 2018, has been the year that digital transformation (DX) became mainstream in the mining sector. The challenge now for technology leadership across IT and operations within mining companies is delivering a return on the initial investments and then being able to make the case for the ongoing change that will be required across technologies, people, and processes to continue to reap the value that these expanded capabilities offer to leverage data further. The opportunity is to move beyond optimising the current operating model and operational siloes and focus on an integrated value chain within an open ecosystem.
Never before have there been more changes to tools, processes, and deployment environments happening in parallel. If the shift from on-premises to off-premises computing was not enough, few existing applications will become digital-native applications without dramatic updates. We will end up leaving some venerable applications behind, but we can also expect a broad range of exciting new applications — some of them bordering on scary smart — in the next five years.
The IDC FutureScape is an important compilation of several disciplines within IDC’s research sectors distilling insights from IT, cybersecurity, analytics, managed security services, identity and access management, and data and digital security. The perspective is global, and analysts from different global regions participated in the study. Each prediction is designed to demonstrate an outcome, although the limit of the study are predictions made through January 1, 2024. The larger goal of the exercise is to provide guidance for IT technology providers and for technology providers to best utilize their personnel, maximize the impact of current investments (and plan future investments), and improve their cybersecurity postures.
These predictions provide a strategic context that will enable CIOs to lead their organizations through a period of multiplied innovation and disruption over the next 5 years. They also lay out IDC’s vision for the 10 most important shifts that will happen in IT organizations over the next 60 months and will help senior IT executives in the formation of their strategic IT plans.
This blog lists the top 10 worldwide predictions for manufacturing product and service innovation. These technology predictions are meant to help the enterprise with strategic planning within a typical five-year business planning cycle.
