Technology evolves quickly—so quickly, in fact, that it can be tempting to tune out the tech chatter. If you’re a stakeholder or decision-maker in your company, how do you know what new technology to pursue? In KPMG’s fourth annual Global Technology Innovation Survey, 832 technology industry business leaders from around the globe offered their input on a wide variety of tech-related topics, including identifying the technologies that will have the greatest impact on driving business transformation over the next 3 years. Let’s take a look at their top four responses.
New updates to the DSI Digital Supply Chain Platform (DSCP)TM , 8.2 SP1, make it easier to deliver rich, browser-based apps using an HTML5 client. Because you can deploy these browser-based apps to a broader range of devices and across more platforms without the need for device-resident client software, you’ll have less administrative overhead and the ability to distribute applications more broadly. The DSCP updates also include transaction analytics (pictured above) to help customers keep tabs on transaction activity and diagnose performance issues when integrating with back-end systems of record.
APIs, once the sole domain of tech-savvy developers, are now moving into the boardroom. The use cases—and business benefits—are compelling, including helping companies learn more about their customers, adding robust functionality to existing software and mobile apps and improving their competitive advantage through better visibility, insight and performance. If you aren’t yet tapping into the full power of APIs, now’s the time to start.

The cloud, once an aspirational destination, has undergone a significant shift, increasingly becoming “ingrained in the fabric of business and IT,” according to Gartner. Although operating out of the cloud may not be the best fit for every business, cloud migration is certainly worth considering. Yet like any large-scale technology implementation, cloud migration can be complex—and that means you need a plan. If you’re thinking about moving your business infrastructure to the cloud, start with this mission-critical checklist.

Thanks to a number of factors, including Google’s selection of Kansas City for the installation of Google Fiber, the city is quickly earning a reputation as a major tech and start-up hub—and is an ideal host for the growing Techweek brand, joining Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Detroit. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend Techweek Kansas City, immersing themselves in a schedule that includes everything from networking happy hours and fireside chats to office tours, keynotes and live demonstrations.
The Industrial Internet of Things is arguably the most widely covered and discussed of these topics in the general public. To help provide additional context around this broad concept, we take a look at how the Internet of Things is driving efficiency, execution, innovation and visibility in several industries, including agribusiness, consumer packaged goods and in the cold chain.

In the webinar, DSI Solutions Engineer Kevin Smail focuses on one area of our digital supply chain solutions—mobility—and how our solutions are specifically engineered to be easy to use without compromising agility or scalability. As an example, “you can run DSI solutions in three different ways: on-premise, mobile and cloud services,” Smail explains, which means you have the flexibility to choose the solutions that best fit your company’s operations.
Topics: mobile platform
The good news is that these challenges can be overcome with proper planning and execution. A significant number of organizations have not yet developed any mobile apps, which means they’re in a prime position to adjust their strategies prior to implementation, rather than having to make time-consuming (and potentially costly) changes to what they’ve already created. To ensure the most productive and successful mobile app development, consider these four recommendations.
