Future Systems

Resilient, bold and fierce organizations have futuristic systems embedded in their infrastructure, which allows them to scale innovations repeatedly and incorporate agile strategies to remain ahead of the competition.

The goal isn't to invest heavily in technologies; what matters here is achieving double revenue on your technological investments; that's when such transformation will truly matter for you. Many organizations are investing a lot of capital in equipping themselves with the latest technology, but what good would it do if they are not reaping its benefits to the fullest. Tech Leaders have successfully closed this gap, and they are scaling their business by earning double or triple revenue growth from the power of future systems.

In the coming years, almost all organizations will need to act strategically to adopt the technological means more deliberately and reinvest more often to maintain consistent growth or risk losing their significant revenue growth.


What is called Future Systems?

Fundamentally, leaders agree that while businesses and their ecosystems can shape cooperative alliances, humans and machines can bring out the best in each other. This is one reason why they are inspired to construct future systems that are boundaryless, adaptable and essentially human, which are defined as follows:



Boundaryless systems take advantage of blurring borders to create new spaces where innovations and alliances thrive within the IT stack, between businesses, and between humans and machines. Boundaryless organizations utilize the cloud, have a uniform approach to data, security and governance, and have established paths for exploring unconventional business/technology partnerships.


Adaptable systems learn, strengthen and adapt on their own, removing, exponentially faster, the friction that hinders business development and motivating people to make better choices. Key markers of adaptable organizations include enterprise-wide use of automation and AI, a continuous data supply chain in the cloud to power the AI in the enterprise, and a stable but modular, flexible, and constantly evolving architecture.

Essentially Human

Essentially human devices, just as we do, speak, listen, see and understand, adding elegant simplicity to any interaction between man and machine and creating the advantage of tomorrow. Thanks to technologies such as natural-language processing, computer vision, voice recognition and machine learning, radically human systems are becoming less artificial and more intelligent, making them easier to interact with and more efficient.

Key steps to close gaps in the achievement of innovation

Recognize details both as an advantage and as a liability

Leaders ensure the quality of data, develop security mechanisms that predict risks, and establish ethically responsible data and AI management systems. This provides a virtuous data production and consumption loop because the quality is indeed rising.

Similarly, to reduce the possibility of adverse effects on corporate performance, brand credibility and regulatory enforcement, the AI handling of company data must gain the faith and trust of the individuals who use it.

Explore new methods to cultivate talent

One of the greatest challenges to developing the vast, scalable, human-centric structures required for success is a workforce submerged in yesterday's technologies.

Survey respondents conclude that 52 percent of the skills of their IT workforce and almost half (47 percent) of the skills of their non-IT workforce will be obsolete in three years without any retraining.

Leaders also ensure that their talent is not afraid of experimenting and introducing essential components of learning and growing non-traditional ideas.

Adopting technologies that make it fast and scalable for the company

Leaders are shifting to decoupled information, infrastructure, and apps that allow greater versatility and a faster-moving IT culture.

While leaders prefer versatile, consistent, and scalable architectures that are capable of adapting to consumer demands, such as seamless customer payments, it is difficult for Laggards to step away from rigid IT architectures that make them unable to optimize innovation investments and susceptible to system-wide outages.

Ground yourself in cloud computing

For Future Systems, cloud computing is important because it allows businesses to use other technology, including AI and analytics, effectively.As such, the cloud is viewed by leaders as a catalyst for innovation.

Manage investments in technology well throughout the organization

By breaking down barriers between IT and other agencies, leaders work for business alignment. They have set up centers of innovation, establishing pipelines for the transfer of innovation. For example, they could consider how changes might be used to forecast and pre-empt employee turnover in machine-learning-driven sales and customer relationship technology.
