The Decade of Seismic Change
This is, without doubt, one of the most important decades for the ICT Industry – adoption of technologies like Cloud and Automation is accelerating, platform economies are becoming the norm, horizontalization is the new mantra, software rules the roost, traditional ecosystems are expanding and morphing into a complex interlinked entity, the technology provider space is being dramatically disrupted by faster and more agile players, open architectures are becoming foundational pre-requisites, and business models are dramatically changing and moving to the outcome and value-based constructs.
Accelerating Digital Transformation of Enterprise and Industry
All of these seismic changes are powering the next wave of connectivity and digitalization in the Enterprise and Industry space. Enterprises and entire industry verticals are seeking to transform their businesses with two fundamental levers – Data and Connectivity.
It was predicted some years back in an IDC report that the size of the digital universe in 2020 would be 44,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 i.e. 44 Zettabytes – a figure higher than the number of known stars in the universe. Data is already central to everything that consumers, enterprises and industries are doing.
There are more than 7 Billion mobile subscriptions today – more than the Earth’s population. Mobile connectivity and smartphones have fueled more than a decade of economic growth and innovation. The next wave of connectivity that is poised to unlock even greater societal and economic value is when we start connecting things – even today, the number of connected IoT devices surpass mobile handsets, and it is predicted that there will be tens of billions of connected devices in this decade alone.
The 5G Era and The Increasing Reliance of Networks
The “New G” is set to become one of the most pivotal transformations in the ICT industry – it will tap into and deliver innovation around the two transformational levers – Data and Connectivity.
5G will cement the role of Networks as the enabling platform for not only consumers, but bigger and broader ecosystems across Enterprise and Industry.
