Accenture has identified six information technology trends that large enterprises including federal agencies would be wise to follow.
The trends involve leveraging digital technologies like mobility, analytics and the cloud to improve business processes, take advantage of real-time intelligence, expand the boundaries of traditional workforces and transform the way these workforces manage and use data in a more agile fashion, Accenture said in a release.
While the study is mostly focused on the agency side, contractors can still take note of how they might better present their capabilities in order to win more business.
The trends are:
Treating data as a supply chain
Crossover between the physical and digital worlds
Crowdsourcing as a way to solve problems beyond the workforce
Hardware staying relevant/high demand for bigger, faster data centers
Software as a core competency in the digital world
