Fujitsu's 12 technology trends for today

  • 1. Real time insight

    • Data is relevant up to the second
    • Datasets are large and complex, and consist of different information types and sources
    • Data collection is automated and takes place in real time from people, systems, instruments or sensors
    • Analytical techniques enable responses to be made dynamically and prescriptively – to anticipate a turn of events

  • 2. Business without borders

    It is now possible to reach customers in any part of the world and the point of production of the good or service may also be anywhere in the world. Workforces can equally be distributed and business services are becoming virtualised, driving by the commoditization of business technology and the availability of “as-a-service” delivery.

  • 3. People first

    Fujitsu calls this 'human centric computing' - the idea that IT work in the way that people do, adapting to suit people’s needs, not the other way around. "Another way of expressing it is that it is about delivering technology that is pervasive, and almost invisible, that enriches and drive a business process or a societal challenge," explained Fujitsu global chief innovation and technology officer, David Smith.

  • 4. Big 'i', little 't'

    The traditional IT focus has tended to be on the 'T' of technology rather than the 'I' of information. This is changing, according to Fujitsu. Information is taking its place as the greatest resource.

  • 5. Everything connected

    These days, anything can be connected to a network, with the intelligence and ability to report on their status and their surroundings. Where once computing was about the interactions between human and machine, it is incorporating a new set of machine-to-machine interactions.

  • 6. Trading places

    Cloud marketing places enable consumers and vendors of business services to interact directly via Web portals. Read more about Fujitsu’s perspectives in CIO’s [[artnid: 416766| interview with global chief innovation and technology officer, David Smith]].
  • 7. Outside-in

    Physical boundaries are under pressure more than ever.
    • B2C – social media and new business models blurring lines between producer and consumer
    • B2B – online services and ecosystems, blurring the lines between supplier and customer
    • B2E – crowdsourcing, co-creation and digital reputation blurring the lines between employer and employee

  • 8. Choice: The new one-size-fits-all

    For many CIOs, managing employee expectations in the face of some quite ground-breaking consumer sector has become the greatest headache. Read more about Fujitsu’s perspectives in CIO’s [[artnid: 416766| interview with global chief innovation and technology officer, David Smith]].
  • 9. Social working

    Social media has become the connection point for digital collaboration. It enables an organisation to extend its reach out into the digital world. It is becoming the standard for how all people connect and integrate – customers, employees, inside and outside of work. It is more than a social media strategy; it about how businesses operate in the digital world.

  • 10. Crowding out

    The Web can connect millions - or billions – of people. Crowdsourcing enables organisations to tap into human resources on a vast scale. It can be both an opportunity for business and a source of disruption.

  • 11. Reshaping organisations

    Companies must be dynamic in the way they operate to navigate the storms of change. Read more about Fujitsu’s perspectives in CIO’s [[artnid: 416766| interview with global chief innovation and technology officer, David Smith]].
  • 12. Mobile is dead (long live mobile)

    Mobile is dead, says Fujitsu. But it is not heading for the graveyard. Rather, the nature of mobile computing is shifting fundamentally. It is ubiquitous and technologies that were once seen as 'perks' are now considered fundamental to job functions.
