Market Overview

Collaboration will define both personal and professional lives

Over the next 10 years, several social, technological, political and economic forces will reshape the business and lifestyle patterns of society in the United States. As Millennials age into management roles and government positions, they will wield significant influence on the American community. Consequently, organizations will re-prioritize competitive dimensions in order to adapt to changing customer dynamics.

Connectivity will penetrate industries and daily life through the Internet of Things. Cities will invest in smart technologies to forge new avenues for commerce and collaboration. This collaboration will lead to greater asset sharing, enhanced inter-business partnerships and strengthened employer-employee relationships. Subsequently, cybersecurity will emerge as a critical point of focus and technologies will become more proactive, adaptive and collaborative to protect against new risks. In spite of several challenges such as mounting student debts and aging infrastructure, the evolution of smart cities, advances in security technology and new jobs created by automation will revive the American dream.
