Technology needs to enable the business. It is one of key success context in the current industry.
Recently, I came to know about an interesting map relating technologies to their impact on the business.
On observing the attached map, you can easily notice that advanced robotics are expected to be emerging technologies in 2019 and beyond, as well as smart machines and brain computer interfaces. Cognitive computing is placed at the edge between high impact and transformational and 5G is considered as having a high impact.
All of these emerging and disruptive technologies are placed under the area of transformational, meaning that they will result in a disruption from the present way of doing business.
In recent IT industry evolution, we can easily observe the necessity of automation in every opportunity; doesn't matter testing, deployment, development, etc.
Change is inevitable and buckle up yourself. All the best !!!
