At the beginning of every year, the digital industry discusses which technologies, trends and developments (must) be at the top of the digital agenda. From blockchain and augmented reality to multi-connected businesses and new mobility, the focus is on a wide variety of technologies – but which trends have a lasting influence on digital transformation, what hype must be included in corporate strategy? Our Digital Consultants classify.
The dimensions of Change in Technology is in the following direction.
- Voice-as-UI – language on the rise.
- Multi-connected businesses.
- The advantages of online and offline for retail: Connected Retail.
- Creating a technical base for the future: API Readiness.
- New Mobility – catch me if you can.
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Augmented Reality – it’s getting serious.
- New networks for new possibilities.
VOICE-AS-UI – LANGUAGE ON THE RISE
Even if the current digital assistants like Google Assistant, Siri or Alexa are not yet perfect – they learn fast. Voice applications will continue to be an important topic in 2019. Companies that haven’t had any experience with voice applications yet or have never created a skill for Google or Alexa should start now. The artificial intelligences behind the voice systems learn at exponential speed which means whoever has no experience with voice systems quickly loses touch to the rest of the world.
The trading business has been shifting in the direction of marketplace dominance for years. Whether Zalando, Amazon, Alibaba or Otto – in order to be able to exist as a trader, there is often no way around participating in the marketplace. In addition to high data quality, this also requires an increasingly stronger ability to import this data into marketplaces and deliver sales. Due to the expected further growth of “Voice-as-UI”, contextuality and sensor technology will be added to the already high demands on the responsiveness of content. This means that the content currently produced by companies (images, descriptive texts, instructions, buttons, etc.) will not only have to be optimised for different screen sizes (responsive content), in the future it will also have to be optimised for different senses (sensor technology).
This will probably not become noticeable until the end of 2019, when online shops and media providers perceive a loss of traffic because the produced content simply cannot be reproduced on voice assistants or other audio devices, there is no suitable call 2 action or the user is simply overwhelmed with the information offered. We think content will have to start becoming multisensory and contextual from 2019 – because what users do not hear is simply not present in their world.
THE ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE AND OFFLINE FOR RETAIL: CONNECTED RETAIL
The combination of the online and offline worlds in retail will also increase in 2019. About two years after the takeover of Whole Foods by Amazon, digital technologies are increasingly being tested in the Amazon universe. In addition, other (stationary) retailers are expanding their digital expertise, driven by technologies such as AR. Pure players are pushing into the market and using flagship stores both for a special customer experience (Amazon, bonprix, Mister Spex) and recently for end-customer sale. In addition, the digital technologies will be connected to the digital channels at the offline POS.
Here are some exciting examples:
- Amazon Go Stores offer cashierless checkout (products taken along are directly assigned to the buyer in the store)
- Kroger (US) builds a digital store together with Microsoft
- Saturn with an increasing connectivity of its stationary areas
- bonprix is also planning to open a digital store in Hamburg’s city centre
CREATING A TECHNICAL BASE FOR THE FUTURE: API READINESS
Companies will increasingly be available on a larger number of digital touchpoints (not only Desktop & Mobile but also on all internet-enabled devices); in the future this will only be possible with a strategy based on interfaces. In 2019, the topic of API’s will be even more relevant in business contexts and will become a digital homework for many companies. Headless systems fill the gap and will drive the paradigm of (modular) API-based systems forward in future. Meanwhile, almost all large shop systems (e.g. commercetools and hybris) invest (or are based) in the structure and functional APIs that are available independently of the frontend. So the goal for many exciting new e-commerce developments is no longer “mobile first”, but “headless API first”!
NEW MOBILITY – CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
2019 and these questions are still open: How will we be driving in traffic in the coming years, how do we finally get our cities car free, when and how do we switch to electric mobility, do we always have to have four wheels and how do we organize all this on our mobile phones?
The traditional German automobile manufacturers seem to have woken up, boosting their e-mobility production with gigantic amounts of money, investing massively in loading concepts and digital strategies and are allying themselves in the fight against Tesla, Uber, Waymo and Co. It seems as if the real race is no longer taking place on the streets and in front of the car dealerships – it is more a matter of getting to the customers’ mobile devices and Incar systems. Well, then!
This year, Daimler and BMW combine their carsharing subsidiaries Car2Go and DriveNow with the highly successful mobility app MyTaxi into a new billion-euro corporation. Finally understood and finally together: “Mobility as a Service” is less about the vehicle and its features than about availability, access and smartness. The right use case at the right time wins customers and gains profit. MyTaxi boasts a solid 75 percent increase in turnover last year and 60 percent growth with more than 40 million rides. We hear that the success is also due to concepts that were copied from the competitor Uber. Now customers have the opportunity to share a taxi with other passengers and therefore save even more money. Based on own big data analyses, algorithms and targeted benchmark analysis, take the decisive leap forward and invest heavily in the own digital excellence– then you succeed in what everyone wants: profitable serious mobility solutions that will scale globally.
What’s next? Germany is getting ready for the E-Scooter boom! With the expected approval this year, we will see more electric scooters in our cities. In Switzerland, Denmark and Spain they are already very successful, in Asia and the USA anyway: as a last-mile solution and ideally as a sharing offer. This is where start-ups can also get their chance. The role models Lime and Bird from the USA show how quickly it can be possible to establish a genuine mobility alternative to cars nationwide and affordable for the user. Everything is data-centered, digitally networked, shareable and app-based and pre-financed by promising investors.
