DeloitteTouche Tohmatsu India LLP’s [DTTILLP or Deloitte India] eighth edition of signature publication on Technology, Media and Telecommunications [TMT] predicts major advances in machine learning, VoLTE technology services and Over the Top [OTT] platforms, apart from othertrends.

VoLTE is expected to be the most prevalent voice technology in the future. It is also estimated that more than 90% of all mobile subscribers will comprise of broadband subscribers by 2023. OTT platforms are witnessing an explosion in original content due to increase in consumption and viewership, the report says, adding that they will gradually become a preferred medium over television,with the consumers of vernacular content likely to become over 2.5 times that of English language content by 2021.

The publication highlights the fact that ‘Machine Learning’ will intensify among medium and large-sized enterprises. Compared to 2017, the number of implementations and pilot projects using machine learning technology is likely to double in 2018 and then doubling again in 2020.

As enterprises in India embrace technology to bring transparency and efficiency in business operations, data assumes center stage in decision-making, setting the stage for tools such as advanced analytics and machine learning to ushervalue-chain efficiencies, a Deloitte India spokesperson said. In 2018, technologies like OTT, VoLTE and Machine Learning will make significant progress and as organizations take steps to realize the potential of the Internet of Things [IoT] for their businesses, predictive analytics and intelligent data mining technologies are set to become mainstream in India.

PN Sudarshan, Partner, Deloitte India, said

India is one of the fastest growing technology market in APAC, with the on-going digital transformation of public sector and private sector enterprises enabled by changing market dynamics and policy interventions. Enterprises across industries are increasingly adopting technology driven solutions to improve customer experience, optimize business operations, and compete effectively in the market.

Catalyzed by the availability of cost effective computing infrastructure and flexible business models through Cloud computing, and the adoption of exponential technologies such as AI, ML, AR, IoT etc., technology sector in India is truly at an inflection point. Trends such as IoT will catalyze the emergence of analytics at the edge. Digital revolution, also known as ‘The Internet Economy’ is creating a new market for digital first services, which has the potential to optimize value chains, bring transparency, and improve overall productivity in the economy.

Newer technologies like LTE, LTE-A, LTE-A Pro & 5G will make wireless internet commercially more viablefor home internet users. The smartphone riding on new innovation will consolidate its position as the primary access to digital services and content, and live streaming and OTT video content arelikely to gain popularity.

Here are some more highlights from the TMT Predictions 2018 India edition:

Internet of Things, Realizing the Potential

IoT-driven point solutions will be adopted to solve a specific business issue. IoT-driven enterprise solutions would help organizations redefine their business models and provide innovative services for their customers; investments will not only be assessed on KPIs, but also will involve new product launches, new supply chains and a new operating model that enables organizations to monetize their services across value chains, leveraging IoT.

Analytics [finally] travels Beyond the Back Office

Enterprises will combine external perspectives, social inputs [surveys, social media comments, response to a feedback questionnaire] to the internal data sources to improve customer service. Device data will be integrated faster and on-demand to answer immediate field needs; information dissemination for decision-making will be faster and simpler using digital delivery; paying for results and provisioning on demand is the new normal [on cloud].

VoLTE: Enabling Next-gen Voice Services

Deloitte predicts that more than 60% of all broadband subscribers would be utilizing Voice over LTE [VoLTE] technology for voice services by 2023 surpassing 5 billion subscribers globally. IoT appliances can be enhanced with VoLTE improving the productivity and efficiency of applications and especially effectiveness in emergency situations, one example is a smartwatch with feature to automatically dial an emergency contact in case of abnormal heart rate.

Wi-Fi would be essential part of service provider network strategy to enhance access and extend coverage. With VoLTE supporting VoWi-Fi [Wi-Fi calling], it would be an opportunity to monetize hot-spots especially relevant in the Asia-Pacific region which would constitute 45% of global hotspots.

Sports Media in India Set to Unlock New Horizons

Indian sports business will continue to attract global investments. With broadcasters paying as much attention to rural segment, these geographies will continue to lead the way for Sports sector in India, especially with Tier 2 leagues beginning to receive widespread attention. Data analytics will increasingly play a significant role in managing all aspects of sports, especially on initiatives such as fan engagement and viewership on digital platforms. Governance related matters will continue to be in focus in Indian Sports ecosystem, and topics such as legalizing betting will be discussed more than before.

Mobile only: Wireless Home Internet Bigger Than You Think

Due to challenges in deployment of fixed broadband networks, current rural internet penetration stands at ~ 17%. In future, demand for fixed broadband would be limited to consumers with higher bandwidth/QoS requirements, with majority of home internet requirements catered through wireless network.

Augmented Reality [AR]: On the Cusp of Reality

The Indian market is witnessing the emergence of AR service providers helping enterprises embrace AR as part of their digital experience strategy. India’s $150 billion technology services industry has the potential to play a key role in increasing the adoption of AR for global businesses by building a robust supply of talent, business models, and frameworks to accelerate deployments. The public sector also has the opportunity to leverage the product and talent ecosystem in the country and adopt AR for improving the quality of experience in areas such as Education and Healthcare.

Synechron, a global financial services consulting and technology services provider, has today revealed the top trends it expects to see in financial services technology in 2018. These priorities touch on six key themes – Innovation, User Experience [UX] Design, Risk, Regulatory Technology [RegTech], Data, and the Cloud – that cut horizontally across the business and therefore are driving enterprise financial services decision-making.

Image Source – Fintech

Based on Synechron’s work with the world’s largest global tier one investment banks and insurance companies, the company has identified the following top priorities for 2018.

Innovation – will focus on taking proven new technologies from pilot to production 

Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence [AI] will continue to dominate in 2018. Where last year was focused on blockchain-pilots, 2018 will be focused on production. As a result, there will be a stronger emphasis on the architecture and interoperability needed to support this approach.

For AI, development will move away from simple automation and focus on cognitive use cases across sales, trading, wealth management and compliance. Cognitive RPA will be a critical bridge in moving from advanced robotics to real cognitive learning.

User Experience Design [UX] – will increase in importance for new B2C and B2B proto-types

In 2018, firms can expect to see experience design applied to immersive technologies such as Augmented Reality [AR] and Virtual Reality [VR], with the aim to improve customer experience. Combined with Natural Language Processing and Machine learning, best practices for UX development will be re-defined for both external customers and internal employees, leveraging the immersive nature of the technologies to create new, meaningful experiences and gamified processes especially in areas like account onboarding.

Risk – will focus more on real-time analytics and automation

Whereas 2017 focused on implementing new regulations focused on risk like Basel III, 2018 will shift to more enterprise-wide risk management techniques. To match the increasingly fast-paced environment of financial services, firms will need to improve real-time risk analysis, supported by AI, to fulfil the changing needs of the organization.

RegTech – will expand beyond KYC-centric use cases which largely dominate the space to take a tech-first approach to all new regulations

With major regulatory changes on the horizon in 2018, RegTech will have a vital role to play as firms move beyond initial MiFID II compliance to gain more long-term benefits from the regulation and take a tech-first approach to their compliance with newer regulations like Fundamental Review of Trading Book [FRTB] and Consolidated Audit Trail [CAT] compliance. Tech-first regulatory compliance will lay the foundation for greater economies of scale across data, analytics, and related risk.

Data – will get bigger as big data initiatives push more intelligent and more open business models and better data tools and visualizations 

While preparations for data standardization began in 2017, firms are still relying on legacy data architecture and infrastructure, and moving past these systems will be a main focus on data in 2018.

To comply with new data requirements like General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] and Payment Services Directive [PSD] II, new data infrastructure will be required. Data virtualization, data lineage, & data visualization will also become increasingly important to gain additional value and intelligence from data.

Cloud – will begin to be considered for mission critical infrastructure

In 2017, banks began to move non-mission critical applications into the cloud, and in 2018 cloud adoption will be more widespread with a focus on security and regulatory compliance. Trends like the use of Open APIs will further drive adoption of the cloud for consumer applications in 2018, and place pressure on banks to create more open, cloud-enabled business models and applications.

As per Faisal Husain, Co-founder and CEO at Synechron,

2018 will continue to be an exciting and dynamic time for financial services. We expect that this year will see the culmination of some key technologies that aim to provide more effective methods of doing business, whether that is more intelligent AI, a more comprehensive use of blockchain or even business compliance ahead of Brexit. We cannot wait to see what 2018 will bring and look forward to leading the way on all these fronts.

Technology is changing at a very rapid pace and one invention that has played the role of catalyst is ‘The Mobile Phone’. Back in the 90’s [the Nokia 1100 era], mobiles used to be a device that only the rich & affluent could afford since consumers had to even pay for the incoming calls on their mobile 🙁 Fast forward now, the bulky, then unintelligent mobile phone has now become much more affordable, intelligent, smarter, and an inseparable part of  our lives. Apart from the on-going innovations in the mobile market, one aspect that has made a tremendous impact on the consumers and businesses alike is the ‘Introduction of applications/apps’.

Image Source – Mobile Phone

Era of Hyper-personalization

Whatever be the task, consumers now have an app that can get the work done for them. There are apps catering to every segment – travel, shopping, medical, banking, personal finance, etc. due to which consumers have access to a variety of services at their fingertips. As mentioned earlier, mobile technology has not only had a tremendous impact on the lives of consumers but has also resulted in a rapid shift in the manner in which products/services are marketed online. Gone are the days where marketers could apply a ‘one size fits all’ strategy for customer acquisition and customer retention since this is an era of Hyper-personalization.

With customers having so many options at their disposal, it becomes imperative for companies to offer consumers hyper-personalized experience, an experience tailor-made for them. Apart from the plethora of consumer-generated data, namely social media information, browsing history, purchasing history, user preferences, etc. that companies can utilize to provide a near-about ‘unique and personalized’ experience, ‘Location Services’ is what would make that experience ‘truly unique’!

Location – Personalization at your service

Majority of the smartphones [high-end, mid-range] as well as tablets now come equipped with Assisted GPS [AGPS] that consume significantly lesser power as compared to GPS, due to which geo-location [process of finding exact location of a mobile/tablet/etc.] has become more important for brands as well as developers. Food-tech companies [like Swiggy, Foodpanda, etc.], on-demand transport apps [like Uber, Ola, etc.], hyper-local startups, etc. use location for customer relationship management, targeted marketing, pushing relevant offers to customers but there are apps in other sectors apart from the ones mentioned above can take advantage of location.

There is no doubt that location-based services have gained much more prominence since people are mostly hooked on to their mobile phones during the day, due to which brands can reach them with relevant and timely information. Location-based services market is expected to reach $3.8 billion by 2018 [Source] and mobile marketers are leaving no stone unturned to make use of these services in order to provide a much better customer engagement and experience. Beacons and Geo-fencing are the two major options available for them, with each having its unique advantages and disadvantages.

Beacons or Geo-Fencing for location-based services

Beacons are small devices that detect when your mobile phone is in close proximity to it. Beacon than sends a signal to the server which in-turn sends a ‘relevant’ push notification to your device. The primary advantage of beacons is that they are highly accurate and can be used indoors. The downside is that they are hard to deploy since beacon is a separate hardware and they need to be placed at strategic locations inside a store in order to get the best output. Geo-fencing is a virtual fence drawn on a map. The size of the fence can vary from small [e.g. a small retail outlet] to huge [e.g. city]. Hence, geo-fencing is ideally suited for outdoor use-cases like measuring the throughput of a billboard advertisement/sending push notifications to customers at an airport lounge/etc. Also, geo-fencing does not require any additional hardware since it uses user’s phone GPS location. In a nutshell, mobile marketers have to make a conscious decision to select the right approach based on the budget, brand requirements, target audience, etc.

Radar – Location platform for mobile apps

Location is definitely the future of mobile and as mentioned earlier, a majority of the apps on Android as well as iOS platforms are not location-aware. Though there are many companies in the location space like FourSquare, Factual, etc., app developers required location platform for mobile apps. The main advantage of such a platform is that developers can build great location-aware product experiences, and collect and store location data in a privacy-sensitive way without spending too much time on this development. Radar, a US-based startup is solving this problem for developers by providing tools that help app developers add location tracking and context to their apps. Radar helps companies build better products and make better decisions with location data. For example, a travel app may change the in-app experience when someone is traveling and at an airport or a delivery app can help track all the delivery drivers. App developers can use Radar’s iOS and Android SDK to add these capabilities to their apps in just a few lines of code. Building these capabilities from scratch can take weeks or months, but integrating Radar takes only a few hours.

Radar currently caters to use-cases in the following segments

  • Shopping
  • Travel
  • Food
  • Entertainment
  • Social
  • On-demand

Radar has three products as mentioned below:

  • Geo-fencing: With Geo-fencing, Radar will tell you when a user enters custom regions that you draw on a map. Geo-fences can be circles or polygons, and they might represent stores, neighborhoods, or other regions depending on your use case.
  • Insights: With Insights, Radar will learn where a user lives and works, and tell you when a user is at home, at work, or traveling.
  • Places: With Places, Radar will tell you when a user is at a place, a chain [e.g., Starbucks], or a category [e.g., airport], even if you have not set up a geo-fence for that place.

Location technology by Radar is used in many apps, including Warby Parker, Via, SeatGeek, Chick-fil-A, Raise, etc.
