2021 Tech Trends and the Pandemic Impact on the business


I was given to present last week to investment bankers, and wanted to share what I covered about 2021 Tech Trends and the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the business adoption of tech innovations. I based this presentation on McKinsey’s publications and research.

I eluded to:

  • Cloud (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, DaaS),
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI/ML),
  • Internet of Things (IoT),
  • High Connectivity (5G),
  • Trusted Architectures (BlockChain),
  • Robots, Cobots and RPA
  • Software 2.0.
  • 3D / 4D Printing
  • and more…

Will your organization make the most of these trends to pursue new heights of rapid innovation, improved performance, and significant achievement?

“In the next decade, we’ll experience more progress than in the past 100 years combined.”

Peter Diamandis,
Cofounder of the Singular University

But what did the COVID 19 pandemic did introduce in the digital transformation, apart from accelerating its adoption, typically 3-7 years of forecasted adoption in just a few months of lockdown?

  • Digital Adoption
  • Accelerate core business pace
  • Build new digital business models
  • Achieve 20%+ revenue with product and services that didn’t exist one year ago

Share of sales from products or services not existing 1 YEAR ago (%)

Top Performers 21%
All Others 12%

According to McKinsey and the 1,200 executives they interviewed, companies with better overall technology capabilities, talent, leadership, and resources are seeing better economic outcomes.

Top economic performers were more innovative than their peers during the COVID-19 crisis.

Reporting on the online survey conducted from January 19 to January 29, 2021, and garnered responses from 1,140 C-level executives, senior managers, and business-unit, department, or division heads representing the full range of regions, industries, company sizes, and functional specialties.

McKinsey’s results confirm not only that a strong technology foundation is critical but also that leading companies are far ahead of competitors in building theirs. For everyone else, the time is now to make bold investments in technology and capabilities that will equip their businesses to outperform others in a rapidly evolving landscape.

Mobile is reordering tech industry and internet forever


traduction française ci-dessous

Try to remember, back in 2010, we anticipated Mobile Internet would overtake fixed Internet by 2014. We actually entered the mobile era for some time already with 5.2B mobile phone users (73% population penetration) and 1.6B of these owning Smartphones, 789M laptop users, an astounding 440M tablet users to be compared to 743M Desktop users and 5.5B TV users.

Tablets have been taking this industry by storm. Would you believe it took less than 3 years for tablets shipment to outgrow Desktop and Laptop?

Tablet and smartphone business accounts for nearly 50% of the global consumer electronic industry.

Mobile Apps

Time spent on mobile apps surpasses now the time spent on the web in the US already. Way to go is for every business to have a customer app.

As presented by Benedict Evans from Andreessen Horowitz, Mobile is eating the world. A typical startup back in 2000 would raise $10M with 100 employees and 1M users. Today, startups are raising $1M with 10 employees and 10M users.

That’s it! Our world changed forever. But mobile internet is indeed more than just Smartphones and Tablets, but also MP3 players, cameras and home entertainment, not to forget wearables as watches. Each new computing wave is associated with about 10x the number of users compared to the previous one. The client server one brought 100M+ PCs, Internet brought 1B+ desktop/laptops, mobile will connect 10B+ devices. Let’s not even think of, for now, of the Internet of Things (IoT), it’ll be at least a 10x factor.

Mobile is now becoming the by default place to start thinking about our customers interaction with our brands and their experience of it. Industry after industry, the business transformation to a digital mobile one is happening.

In the meantime, have a look at Mary Meeker latest Internet trends great presentation.

Get ready, we’ll be back on this topic.


Le mobile bouscule l’industie des technologies et l’Internet pour toujours

Essayez de vous rappeler: en 2010 nous avions prévu que l’Internet mobile dépasserait l’Internet fixe en 2014. Nous sommes en fait entrés dans l’ère mobile depuis un certain temps déjà avec 5,2 milliard de téléphones portables (73% de pénétration de la population) dont 1,6 milliard de Smartphones, 789 millions d’ordinateurs portables et un étonnant chiffre de 440 millions de tablettes à rapprocher des 743 millions de PC et 5,5 milliard de télévisions.

Les tablettes sont entrées dans cette industrie avec force. Croiriez-vous qu’il a fallu moins de 3 ans pour que le nombre de tablettes livrées dépasse celui des PC de bureau et portables?

Le chiffre d’affaire des tablettes et smartphones représente déjà près de 50% de l’industrie mondiale de l’électronique grand public.

Applications mobiles

Le temps passé sur les applications mobiles dépasse maintenant celui passé sur le web aux Etats-Unis déjà. Pour toutes les entreprises avoir une application mobile pour ses clients semblent une évidence.

Tel que présenté par Benoît Evans Andreessen Horowitz, le mobile est en train de manger le monde. Une start-up typique en 2000 levait 10 million $ avec 100 employés et 1 million d’utilisateurs. Aujourd’hui, les startups lèvent 1 million de dollars avec 10 employés et 10 millions d’utilisateurs.

Et voilà! Notre monde a changé pour toujours. Mais l’Internet mobile est en réalité beaucoup plus que simplement les smartphones et tablettes, il faut compter également les lecteurs MP3, les appareils photo et l’équipement de divertissement à domicile, sans oublier les objets qui se portent comme les montres. Chaque nouvelle vague de l’informatique est associée à environ 10x le nombre d’utilisateurs par rapport à la précédente. Le client/serveur apportait 100M + de PC, Internet connectait 1 milliard ou plus de PC de bureau / portables, l’ère mobile ajoutera 10 milliard de périphériques connectés au moins. Ne pensons même pas pour l’instant, à l’internet des objets (IoT), car ce ce sera au moins encore un facteur 10.

Le Mobile est maintenant en train de devenir l’endroit par défaut pour commencer à penser à l’interaction et l’expérience des clients avec nos marques. Industrie après industrie, la transformation de l’entreprise à une entreprise mobile numérique se réalise.

En attendant, jetez un oeil à Mary Meeker et ses fameuses dernières tendances Internet, une excellente présentation.
