Onwards and Upwards 6; Trends in IS

8 Mar

My final post is going to outline some of Deloitte’s predictions for trends in technology for 2013. Hope you enjoy it!

  • Passwords

It is no longer sufficient to have a single sign-on password! The old system, (passwords consisting of a few numbers and a few letters) which has been around for a few decades, will “melt away” according to Eric Openshaw for Deloitte. They believe that people choose a word and numbers they are familiar with and then use this over and over again. If this continues passwords will become easier to hack and security becomes a risk! Therefore a multiple interactive approach will be developed for passwords for access to sensitive areas such as bank accounts.

  • PC

They believe that the PC will remain the dominant device for activity on the internet. Therefore we should concentrate on usage and not the number of devices. It is also the leading choice for users to examine information in an in-depth way, as opposed to using their iPhone or tablet.

  • Gesture and voice control for devices

They believe that this technology will not be around for another four to five years in order for it to be cost effective and capable vs. frustrating and expensive, which is what it would be if it was released now. At the moment it is difficult for the technology to distinguish movement such as getting a handful of popcorn from gesturing to change the channel on TV or are we having a conversation to the person next to us or wanting to change the volume on the TV. Therefore consumers will choose a bigger TV with more features rather than a frustrating device.


Bring your own computer/bring your own device will grow and continue to be a part of enterprise strategy but Deloitte believe that the days are limited. They believe it is not an effective way to “deploy technology” for reasons such as: tax implications, as to who owns the asset as well as the control of the device and where the content goes.

More predictions for technology from Deloitte, as well as more information on each, can be found here 🙂

This has been a very interesting project and I hope you have enjoyed your experience on this site as much as I have!
