Economic uncertainty is one of the primary concerns of customers, buyers and executives, according to a Gartner analyst. It might be stating the obvious. However, it can’t be emphasized enough: It is the top external threat to consistent business growth.

Yet, there’s opportunity that exists within uncertainty.

Daryl Plummer is a Gartner distinguished VP analyst and fellow. In his talk this week at the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo, he outlined 10 strategic IT predictions shaping 2023 and beyond. These can counter challenging economic times, he said. See the slideshow above to understand how.

“We’re finding more pressure to cut costs back more to be efficient. At the same time, we’re getting just as much pressure as we’ve ever had to innovate new things and to succeed,” Plummer said.

“Because uncertainty heralds change. And change often opens the door to opportunity… These predictions of the future are all about how you start thinking about an opportunity that lies within the uncertainty.”
