THE BOTTOM LINE
Nucleus’s top 10 predictions for 2018 highlight the human and results side of existing and disruptive technology. The impact of technology on workers will significantly increase pre-interview testing while reducing the need for limited-skilled workers. Skilled workers will find bots, artificial intelligence (AI), and coaching assistants there to help increase productivity, adding a revenue challenge for vendors with per-seat pricing models. The shine really starts to wear off for Siri and Alexa as the word “annoying” is used more often with them than “useful.” Infor rises while IBM continues to wander aimlessly. The remaining best-of-breed applications will scramble to find a dance partner before integrated cloud-delivered suites cover the entire world.
