Britain is a hub of innovation, particularly where technology is concerned. The average UK tech firm forecasts an 11% rise in sales by 2016 and this is four times the rate of UK GDP, which is predicted to hit 2.7% in 2015. With further growth in the tech sector predicted in 2016, the UK has the opportunity to take advantage of this high-level of innovation to help drive the economy forward.
Technology and innovation are important in all aspects of business, but knowing how to take advantage of the opportunities innovation brings is vital for company development. With that in mind, here are some of the current tech trends that could propel your business into the future:
- The Internet of Things
- Big Data, big impact
- Artificial intelligence (AI)
- Smart glasses
- 24/7 access
Staying on top of the latest innovations can be an elusive task, but doing so can be the difference between standing still and moving forward. As new technologies become even more commonplace, it will be the early business adopters who are in the best position to take full advantage.
