Following the release of the eighth annual Deloitte Tech Trends report, technology consulting partner Simon Murphy takes us through the core themes.

Simon Murphy leads Deloitte’s technology consulting practice in Ireland and is a member of the Deloitte EMEA technology leadership team.

He tells us that a ‘kinetic enterprise’ is one that is trying to deal with the “kinetic energy” of emerging technology and disruption, and using this to its advantage.

Some of the key trends Deloitte has identified on the road to enterprises becoming more kinetic are: unbounded IT, dark analytics, machine intelligence and everything-as-a-service.
