Primary accelerants of the Data Age are emerging technologies powered by, and contributing to, exponential data growth.
These are not the only technologies, and there will be yet more, but they are the leading edge of data transformation. Our research found that among global respondents:
- Half (49%) expect to use these technologies in the future.
- IoT has the most penetration (but only 28%), while 5G has the shortest implementation timeline: 2.6 years.
- Confidence in understanding of 5G’s broad potential varies: 45% of U.S. respondents say they get it, versus 62% in China and 24% in Japan.
