A 2018/19/20 Global Foresights Research Initiative
THE DIGITAL & TECH PERISCOPE
“The Digital & Tech Periscope” is our most ambitious study yet in tracking the key shifts and drivers behind digital disruption and technology advancement. Global in nature, broad in scope – we attempt to cover off 45+ questions about the state of technology and digital.
This study, conducted by our futureproofing and transformation firm Wikibrands and built in partnership with global technology & digital experts at FHCS, bWest Interactive, Breakthrough Digital and Info-Tech Research Group interviewed over 20 digital & technology leaders and surveyed more than 250+ technology practitioners and digital experts to answer our most relevant digital questions.
We’re hoping the results go to some length in providing answers to: improving the intelligent leadership & use of technology and digital applications, tapping into tech’s best practices, overcoming digitalization’s key barriers, identifying the fastest growing technologies & companies, answering key digital debates and ethical questions, and understanding the future pace and evolution for the tech world over the next 2-25 years.
