In 2016, half the world’s population became connected to the internet*, and the number of connected machines surpassed 6.4 billion**. That’s a lot of data coming from a lot of places.

This white paper by Bernard Marr from the Advanced Performance Institute identifies the opportunities and hazards related to 6 key trends in IT, including these:

  • The way we communicate with machines is fundamentally changing.
  • Customer behavior is constantly evolving and people favor brands that keep up.
  • Effective error and failure prediction will increasingly inform and automate business processes.
