Consumer Perceptions and Preferences of the Latest Digital Technologies, North America, 2018
A great deal is changing in the digital world when it comes to communications services. Is your company ready for the next generation of technologies, buyers, and megatrends? The rapid growth of new delivery models, contemporary content, and advertising mechanisms is waking up the traditional players. Technologies such as Siri, Google Home, and Alexa are setting the stage for a voice-driven world. Artificial intelligence and augmented reality will enhance our ability to gather information, communicate with others, and make better decisions. There will be a continued debate around level of security and privacy versus convenience. The one trend that is certain is that consumers are driving the technologies that are being developed in the business world.
