Most Important Future Technologies [CHART]

CMOs around the world believe that mobile solutions (64%) and the Internet of Things (62%) will be the most important technologies in the next 3 to 5 years, per results from IBM’s latest Global C-suite study. That marks a slight difference from the rest of the C-suite, as the other titles surveyed each placed cloud computing within their top-2 future technologies.

The results bring to mind a recent study from Marketo and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in which CMOs and senior marketers tabbed the Internet of Things (IoT) as the future trend having the most impact on marketers by 2020, with real-time mobile personalized transactions closely following.
