Technology Advisory

Empowering agile enterprise by leveraging technology and looking at business, technology, and industry specific issues to make informed strategic decisions

There is a growing gap between business and IT.

Our society lives, works, and plays digitally. Around the clock, we rely on technology's speed, efficiency and convenience. This exciting tech whirlwind continually builds, shifts and innovates. But with exhilaration comes apprehension - about pace, corporate dynamics, government or industry regulations, and potential threats. All are valid hurdles - they're also opportunities. Together, we can make technology happen for your business. PwC’s Technology advisory team of industry and technology professionals help accelerate the successful impact digital can have with their combination of deep business and industry insight and enabling digital innovation.

5 forces shaping our lives and our world

PwC Technology Advisory is committed to staying up to date on the megatrends affecting your industry. These are the 5 forces shaping our lives and our world today:

In the 1950s, less than 30% of the world’s population lived in cities. Currently, that proportion has risen to 50% and, by 2030, the UN projects that some 4.9 billion people will be urban dwellers. Much of the growth in urban population will likely take place in Asia and Africa. Large scale migrations from rural areas will power much of this growth.

Scarcity of resources and the impact of climate change are of growing economic concern. Demand for energy is forecast to increase by as much as 50% by 2030, and water withdrawals by 40%14. Impacts may include increases in extreme weather and rising sea levels, which could make traditional methods of farming, hunting, and fishing difficult or impossible in some places.

Explosive population growth in some areas against declines in others contributes to everything from shifts in economic power to resource scarcity to the changes in societal norms. Countries have very different demographic trajectories. Some societies‘ populations are aging rapidly, even shrinking, and their workforces will be constrained as a share of the total population. Other societies are young and growing, which will create ever larger labor forces and consumer markets.

The focus of global growth has shifted. Western economic dominance is a relatively recent historical phenomenon that is waning, and the developments we see are essentially a rebalancing of the global economy.

Breakthroughs in such disciplines as artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and other frontiers of research and development are increasing productive potential and opening up new investment opportunities. Entire new industries are being created, which could have a significant impact on the size and shape of the world’s manufacturing and high-tech sectors and the companies that operate within them.
