Imaginning our quantum future

Digital shockwaves will impact every aspect of business and daily life

Welcome to this new edition of Ascent magazine, the Atos thought leadership publication, which explores the impact of disruptions from emerging and maturing technologies on business and society.

This year we describe these disruptions as ‘digital shockwaves’, similar to ripples on the surface of a pond, interacting in complex and unexpected patterns. They will come from four possible sources: new ways of working with other people, machines and virtual entities; the opportunities to establish new business models within and across organizations; disruptive technologies such as swarm, Artificial Intelligence and quantum; and evolving challenges, including privacy and cyber-security.

The technologies creating these waves of change will profoundly affect our business and financial models, organizational structures and operational processes. They will also have a significant influence on everyday life.

The digital shockwaves will have immense positive potential. As we explore in these pages, the innovations resulting will drive business efficiency, promote agility and boost revenue growth. Away from the workplace, we will all benefit from digital transformation in our experience of sustainable food cultivation, healthcare – even on the golf course. However, the possibilities are so wide that good judgment, responsibility and ethics must also play an important role in the coming years.
