Cloud and mobile are expected to continue to gain momentum as the most disruptive technologies in consumer and business markets over the next three years, according to the Global Technology Innovation survey by KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm.

The technology leaders also expect biometrics (gesture/facial/voice) and data and analytics (Big Data) technologies to develop as key breakthrough technologies. 

KPMG surveyed 811 technology business leaders globally from technology industry startups, mid-sized to large enterprises, venture capital firms and angel investors in order to identify disruptive technologies, innovation trends, and the scope of change.

“Continuing developments in Cloud and Mobile, and the interplay of these technologies, is enabling new business models that take advantage of economies of scale, provide virtual access to supply chains and allow physical products to operate in the Cloud. The survey findings indicate that tech leaders are bullish on the power of these technologies to continue to fuel innovation in coming years and drive disruption in many industries,” said Gary Matuszak, global chair, KPMG’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications practice.  “At the same time, the ongoing emergence of other technologies such as biometrics and artificial intelligence prompts innovation opportunities in the next three to four years that we cannot imagine today.”

Survey respondents selected Mobile, Cloud, and biometrics (gesture/facial/voice) as the top three technologies that will enable the next indispensable consumer technology in the next three years.

Asked which technologies would drive business transformation for enterprises, technology leaders selected Cloud, Mobile and data and analytics as having the greatest impact.
