The leading edge of this area is being used by the military, which is studying the use of drone swarms to attack or defend military targets. A digital twin is a digital representation of a real-world entity or system. In the context of IoT, digital twins are linked to real-world objects and offer information on the state of the counterparts, respond to changes, improve operations and add value.
With an estimated 21 billion connected sensors and endpoints by , digital twins will exist for billions of things in the near future. Potentially billions of dollars of savings in maintenance repair and operation MRO and optimized IoT asset performance are on the table, says Cearley.
In the short term, digital twins offer help with asset management, but will eventually offer value in operational efficiency and insights into how products are used and how they can be improved. Edge computing describes a computing topology in which information processing and content collection and delivery are placed closer to the sources of this information. Connectivity and latency challenges, bandwidth constraints and greater functionality embedded at the edge favors distributed models.click

Enterprises should begin using edge design patterns in their infrastructure architectures — particularly for those with significant IoT elements. A good starting point could be using colocation and edge-specific networking capabilities. Cloud is a system where technology services are delivered using internet technologies, but it does not dictate centralized or decentralized service delivering services. When implemented together, cloud is used to create the service-oriented model and edge computing offers a delivery style that allows for executions of disconnected aspects of cloud service.
Conversational platforms will drive a paradigm shift in which the burden of translating intent shifts from user to computer.

The challenge that conversational platforms face is that users must communicate in a very structured way, and this is often a frustrating experience. A primary differentiator among conversational platforms will be the robustness of their conversational models and the API and event models used to access, invoke and orchestrate third-party services to deliver complex outcomes.
Solution Overview & Initiatives
Augmented reality AR , virtual reality VR and mixed reality are changing the way that people perceive and interact with the digital world. Combined with conversational platforms, a fundamental shift in the user experience to an invisible and immersive experience will emerge. Application vendors, system software vendors and development platform vendors will all compete to deliver this model.
Over the next five years the focus will be on mixed reality, which is emerging as the immersive experience of choice, where the user interacts with digital and real-world objects while maintaining a presence in the physical world. Blockchain is a shared, distributed, decentralized and tokenized ledger that removes business friction by being independent of individual applications or participants. It allows untrusted parties to exchange commercial transactions.
The technology holds the promise to change industries, and although the conversation often surrounds financial opportunities, blockchain has many potential applications in government, healthcare, content distribution, supply chain and more. However, many blockchain technologies are immature and unproven, and are largely unregulated. A practical approach to blockchain demands a clear understanding of the business opportunity, the capabilities and limitations of blockchain, a trust architecture and the necessary implementation skills.
Identify the integration points with existing infrastructures, and monitor the platform evolution and maturation. Digital businesses rely on the ability to sense and be ready to exploit new digital business moments. Business events reflect the discovery of notable states or state changes, such as completion of a purchase order. Some business events or combinations of events constitute business moments — a detected situation that calls for some specific business action.
The most consequential business moments are those that have implications for multiple parties, such as separate applications, lines of business or partners. With the advent of AI, the IoT, and other technologies, business events can be detected more quickly and analyzed in greater detail. Digital business creates a complex, evolving security environment. The use of increasingly sophisticated tools increases the threat potential.
Continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment CARTA allows for real-time, risk and trust-based decision making with adaptive responses to security-enable digital business.
Traditional security techniques using ownership and control rather than trust will not work in the digital world. This requires embracing people-centric security and empowering developers to take responsibility for security measures. Strategic technology trends have the potential to drive significant disruption and deliver significant opportunity.
