On Friday, April 29 Deloitte hosted a group of IO member company CEOs for a presentation on their TMT Predictions 2016.

Duncan Stewart provided an update on the accuracy of his 2015 predictions before delving into his thoughts about:

  • Device usage
    • Laptops continue to be highly popular among millenials, while tablets are evolving into a product used by young children alongside their grandparents.
  • The state of broadcast and OTT
    • Cord cutting is not nearly as significant as some have predicted, but the rate will accelerate as younger audiences (‘cord nevers’) decline to purchase pay TV packages, in favour of OTT options.
  • Opportunities in VR
    • Deloitte predicts a significant consumer market, but even greater enterprise applications, in areas such as real estate and medical training.
