Internet of Things: From Sensing to Doing – The real value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not in the quantity of sensors deployed or new devices connected, but rather in IoT's disruptive potential for reimagining business processes and rewiring business, government and society. Forward-thinking organizations are harnessing this potential through innovative approaches to event orchestration, cognitive analytics and robotics. 
  • Social Impact of Exponential Technologies – Around the globe, an emerging entrepreneur class is accessing, adopting and experimenting with exponential technologies. Ultimately, the same forces driving innovation and growth in the commercial sector can also drive transformational change on a social level. Humanity's grandest challenges in education, health care, climate change and even civil rights can all be viewed through a different lens as disruptive technologies energize creative problem solving. This begs the question: What responsibility do companies have to expand their reach beyond their own walls and help leverage exponentials to drive greater good in society? And how do they balance commercial opportunities with the ethics and morality of exponential technology adoption?

Cyber risk remains a universal concern – covering security, privacy, regulatory and compliance implications. According to the report, organizations will have to balance priorities to experiment in new areas and transform existing assets with the need to ensure solutions are secure, vigilant and resilient; but, more importantly, determine how to see past the worries of today to drive innovation, and get ahead where it matters most.

Briggs added, "This report examines how technology has continued to mature and the significant impact it has on both the enterprise and the consumer. In the age of digital innovation, CIOs are exploring largely-uncharted territory and need to evaluate new technologies against the practical realities of today. This calls for CIOs to inspire, revitalize and transform 'business as usual' across the enterprise. They must move beyond the 'what' to the 'so what' for these technology trends, in order to build tomorrow – starting today."
