Gartner’s Lewis Farran Explains Technology Trends And Managing For The Future

Technology Trends And Managing For The Future Lewis Farran

In the future you’re either a digital business or a dead business; and it’s up to you to decide whether that happens or not. This was Lewis Farran’s message from a recent presentation he gave at a conference in Tijuana focused on Gartner’s top 10 strategic technology trends list, which include: AI foundations, intelligent apps, intelligent things, digital twins, cloud to the edge, conversational platform, immersive experience, blockchain, event-driven and continuous adaptive risk and trust.

People who never sat down and used a controller to play games on a console, are know playing low-skill games on their mobile phones while waiting in lines at the bank, while on the bus, while seated on first-class, while having a conversation with a friend.

Pretty much everyone is a gamer today.
