Megatrends are large, transformative global forces that impact everyone on the planet. Ernst & Young (EY) has identified six megatrends that define our future by having a far-reaching impact on business, society, culture, economies and individuals. While each of the megatrends stands on its own, there is clear interactivity. Digital, big data, sensors and social applications are closely intertwined with expected transformations across other megatrends. Digital technologies will drive the realization of tomorrow’s “intelligent cities”.
