  11. 11. When DARQ technologies reach maturity, they will spark a step change, offering businesses major opportunities. This has happened before. During the digital revolution, social, mobile, analytics, and cloud (SMAC) combined to enable a step change in business. Now, DARQ technologies will impact the same areas of business as SMAC. When DARQ technologies mature and converge, they will spark another step change. #TechVision2019 11www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  12. 12. 89% of businesses are already experimenting with one or more DARQ technologies. • According to our survey, 67 percent of companies report that AI is being piloted or adopted in their organization. • Distributed ledger investments are exploding, with blockchain and cryptocurrency startups alone collecting almost $3.9 billion in the first three-quarters of 2018, nearly three times the total for 2017. Why start now? The first wave of businesses using DARQ to drive differentiation is already here. 12www.accenture.com/technologyvision #TechVision2019
  13. 13. 92% of executives say SMAC technologies are still considered a competitive differentiator for their organization. In the post-digital age, “digital” will be a core expectation of being in business. But that doesn’t mean that the value of SMAC investments is over. Strong SMAC foundations will let businesses explore DARQ technologies while they are still in early stages—a must if they want to stay ahead of competitors. Not only does this give businesses a head start with DARQ, it also creates new value from previous investments, extending the digital business into the future. To get started, businesses can use their previous digital investments as a springboard for early forays into DARQ. #TechVision2019 13www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  14. 14. Many ignored SMAC for too long. How can businesses avoid this mistake with DARQ? Companies can work on developing new DARQ- enabled capabilities as soon as the maturing technologies make them possible. Companies can push the development of DARQ technologies forward, and discover new capabilities, by experimenting with combinatorial effects. Companies can explore ways to support their DARQ experiments with technologies they have already invested in, using their digital foundations to launch meaningful pilots early on. #TechVision2019 14www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  15. 15. #TechVision2019 15www.accenture.com/technologyvision DECISION POINTS
  16. 16. • Early-stage DARQ pilots will heavily rely on SMAC practices. Prioritize the completion of ongoing digital transformation efforts. • Consider where businesses in the Communications Industry stumbled with SMAC adoption at the beginning of the digital revolution, and what pitfalls were difficult or impossible to recover from. This will help you build roadmaps for the growth of DARQ technologies, and ultimately determine the optimal time to involve your business in each one. Is your digital foundation ready for DARQ?1 #TechVision2019 16www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  17. 17. • Decide whether you will buy or build your own AI tools, taking AI training and security requirements into account. • Explore different XR use cases in the enterprise. Depending on how you expect to use XR throughout your business, decide whether you should begin building an in-house team to design XR experiences, or establish vendor contracts. • Begin identifying the best use cases for distributed ledger technology in your industry. Will you use it internally or to pivot quickly between many business partnerships? • Establish relationships with leading quantum cloud vendors and explore new quantum computing capabilities as they are made available. Determine how your organization will access the DARQ technologies that are relevant for your business, keeping in mind their different levels of maturity. 2 #TechVision2019 17www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  18. 18. • Approach hiring, training, and employee retention with DARQ in mind. As the technologies become more pervasive, expertise will be increasingly in demand. • As recruiting DARQ talent becomes more competitive, consider training programs to reskill your current employees and incentivize them to stay. How are you adding DARQ skills to your current workforce?3 #TechVision2019 18www.accenture.com/technologyvision
  19. 19. • DARQ technologies have the potential to transform whole industries from the ground up. Start a future-looking program dedicated to scenario planning. Task the team with exploring different possible futures for your organization, driven by the industry-level impact of DARQ. • Steer your industry toward your company’s preferred future with strategic combinations of DARQ technologies. Evaluate each combination, taking into account what can be implemented today and what capabilities they will enable as they mature. Use this information as you build your overall DARQ strategy. How can you use DARQ to shape the future of the Communications Industry? 4 #TechVision2019 19www.accenture.com/technologyvision
