This is the ninth edition of Tech Trends, and in a way, it represents the culmination of our dogged efforts to examine the powerful technology forces that are remaking our world. The trends we discussed early on in the series, such as digital, cloud, and analytics, are now embraced across industries.

Part 2 explores in more detail what is involved in workforce shaping and is based on our observations and experiences when working with clients.
