Q: What will be the driving technologies for the next decade?
A: It’s all about enablement. There are a lot of different—and what some people may call new—technologies out there, but most people are looking at them for technology’s sake. The technologies that succeed are those that enable people/communities/business to be more flexible and agile. … The biggest player will be context. These pieces will all fit together with apps that are aware of your context, knowing where you are, where you’re going, what you’re trying to do, and helping you to achieve it more efficiently and productively by anticipating your needs.
For any of these technologies to succeed, they must follow the FUN principle: Focus on the User’s Needs. This mindset, accompanied by these technologies, will see them booming in the coming years.
