(Washington DC, Tuesday, June 30, 2015)Technology is moving at breakneck pace — with social, mobile, analytics, cloud and other technologies driving the rapid evolution of digital businesses and governments. The newly released annual report Accenture Technology Vision 2015 identifies emerging trends that harness new technologies and reflect the shift from the “me” to the “we” economy.

These trends have important implications for federal IT  and include placing citizens at the center of every digital experience, delivering quantifiable results, enabling the creation of new industry specific applications with more human-like intelligence, and amplifying the need for people and machines to do more, together.

Tom Greiner, who leads Accenture Federal Service’s Technology business, describes what the future holds in the “We Economy.”

SOUNDBITE #1:

TECHNOLOGY CONTINUES TO GROW AT A RAPID PACE. THERE ARE EMERGING DEMANDS FROM BOTH CITIZENS WHO INCREASINGLY ENGAGE WITH GOVERNMENT THROUGH DIGITAL CHANNELS AND THE GOVERNMENT’S OWN EMPLOYEE BASE HELPING DRIVE THE ADOPTION OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES. THESE TECHNOLOGIES BETTER ANTICIPATE USER NEEDS, ARE BETTER CONNECTED, ARE MORE AGILE, AND ARE INCREASINGLY RESPONSIVE. 

SOUNDBITE #2:

FUTURE APPLICATIONS NEED TO BE MORE NIMBLE, AND FEDERAL LEADERS NOW NEED TO CONSIDER A NEW SET OF MARKERS TO CONTINUE TO MEET CITIZEN NEEDS. GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT BEGIN THEIR REINVENTION NOW WILL BE ABLE TO ADAPT MORE QUICKLY TO THE PACE OF CHANGE, MANAGE RISING COMPLEXITY AND OPEN DOORS TO MORE INTERCONNECTED BUSINESS ENVIRONMENTS.
