Momentum 2018 Technology Outlook
Many forces will impact tech companies in the coming months, including everything from blockchain and crytopcurrencies, to cybersecurity and digital transformation. Inside the new Middle Market Technology Outlook, readers will find emerging trends that tech executives should be aware of as they navigate the challenges ahead and leverage the opportunities that disruption inevitably brings.
Inside the new Technology Outlook, the focus is on the following:
- Why blockchain is the next big thing.
- Whether cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs) are here to stay.
- Why the Tax Cut and Jobs Act brings a mixed bag for the tech industry.
- Why the tech sector has its collective foot on the accelerator regarding mergers and acquisitions.
- What it takes to survive and thrive in today’s light-speed digital economy.
- How the digital threat landscape is rapidly shifting in the cybersecurity space.
The expectation is that the tech industry will continue its rapid expansion in 2018. It can hardly do otherwise, given all the influences driving it forward—social, cultural, and especially economic. Tech companies of every type ramped up revenue last year in into 2018. Of note is the wealth of VC and private equity funding aimed at the tech sector, which means well-managed, growth-focused companies in the right technology sector will continue to get the capital they need to expand. An improving IPO and M&A market both signal green for the industry. And recent tax reform has spurred tech giants like Apple and Google to begin the repatriation of hundreds of billions in overseas cash, much of which they’ll invest in growth.
