This IDC Presentation was given as a webcast on January 26, 2016, to European audiences.
The 3rd Platform era — characterized by cloud, mobile, social, and Big Data analytics — is now entering a new phase in Europe. In this new era, Innovation Accelerators such as robotics, next-generation security, cognitive systems, wearables, 3D printing, and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) will reshape consumer experiences and business processes in a myriad of verticals. New European and global suppliers building ecosystems and devices will arise, and old winners will become losers.
In this presentation, the IDC European Vision 2020 team describes how seven significant scenarios in business and everyday life will look in 2020 — when a big part of the Innovation Accelerator revolution will be adopted — and its implications for technology vendors and technology buyers. The presentation also includes high-level guidance for both buyers and suppliers, focusing on what they should do to get ahead of the game.
