IDC FutureScape

The mission in financial services today is driven by the need to improve customer engagement in selling, delivering, and servicing financial products, payments, and services. Included in this mission is the need for some financial service firms to improve their "brand trust," providing their customers with a more transparent and secure environment. While some of this will be driven by internal strategy, much of it will be dictated through regulation and guidance. Driving all this is a concept called "connected banking," which is forcing the industry to disrupt its own business model by connecting to adjacent markets in order to expand the relationship with its customers and provide an experience that is being shaped by industries outside of financial services.

Top 10 Worldwide Mining 2019 Predictions

By Emilie Ditton

This year, 2018, has been the year that digital transformation (DX) became mainstream in the mining sector. The challenge now for technology leadership across IT and operations within mining companies is delivering a return on the initial investments and then being able to make the case for the ongoing change that will be required across technologies, people, and processes to continue to reap the value that these expanded capabilities offer to leverage data further. The opportunity is to move beyond optimising the current operating model and operational siloes and focus on an integrated value chain within an open ecosystem.

The IDC FutureScape is an important compilation of several disciplines within IDC's research sectors distilling insights from IT, cybersecurity, analytics, managed security services, identity and access management, and data and digital security. The perspective is global, and analysts from different global regions participated in the study. Each prediction is designed to demonstrate an outcome, although the limit of the study are predictions made through January 1, 2024. The larger goal of the exercise is to provide guidance for IT technology providers and for technology providers to best utilize their personnel, maximize the impact of current investments (and plan future investments), and improve their cybersecurity postures.
