IT Trend Radar 2017
Digitalisation is omnipresent, is changing people and markets in the long term at an ever-increasing speed. Absolute requirements are continual adaptation and realignment of products and services.
For all intents and purposes, the new technological framework, made up of Cloud computing, mobile networks, CPU power and massive storage capacities, means innovations are no longer coming up against limitations. We just need to think about pioneering technical innovations such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, self-driving vehicles, robots and nanosensors. Whilst many of these technologies may not yet have reached maturity, they all have massive development potential and point towards significant changes.
The insurance and financial industries are also affected by this radical transition and need to keep pace with digital changes. Only those who identify the potential of new technologies and trends in their early stages will lay the foundations for value-added innovations, and thereby gain a competitive edge.
High quality information on current and future technology trends is key for effective, strategic business decisions. This is to be rendered possible by our IT Trend Radar. It systematically analyses opportunities, trends and technologies, and provides an ongoing insight into which technologies could be relevant for Munich Re and our customers from a very early phase.
