Digital payments

The intersection of mobility and e-commerce is driving innovations fuelling a long-term and persistent shift to digital payments — which now grow at five times the rate of physical commerce. Smartphones are replacing wallets and transactions previously conducted only in cash are now being processed electronically — making payments faster, more convenient and more secure.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

Advancements in the science of teaching machines how to solve problems, and progress in data collection and storage, are leading to a revolution in AI. This will impact nearly every sector of the economy, offering companies cost savings and new sources of revenue. AI applications range from web searches and self-driving cars to virtual reality and disease diagnosis.

Internet of things (IoT)

IoT refers to everyday devices — automobiles, thermostats, home appliances — leveraging innovative technology to communicate over the internet with each other and with consumers. This can also help companies harness data to optimise operations across industries, including manufacturing, shipping and energy.

Cloud computing

The cloud enables the delivery of IT services over the internet, reducing costs by eliminating the need for companies to operate expensive data centres and purchase their own on-site hardware and software. Cloud-based services are typically more scalable, use cutting-edge hardware, enable greater innovation and result in more flexible, cheaper, more efficient and more secure networks.

Digital transformation

Innovative companies are helping customers implement cloud-based software systems to reduce costs, operate more efficiently and utilise disruptive technologies like robotics, machine learning and IoT to improve business processes. Software can also leverage predictive analytics to analyse data to find ways to better engage with customers and identify new sources of revenue.
