Technologies will mainly aim to achieve globalisation, industrialisation and consumerisation.
The use of the 'cloud' will become more common, with mobile data costs declining as speeds increase. Data stored on servers will need to be kept secure for the peace of mind of the user/client.
Wired and wireless data transmission will will need to be improved in terms of affordability and network speeds in order for the cloud model to function well.
The use of Big Data (Information) will continue to grow as organisations use the data to optimise their products and/or services. "Gartner predicts that by 2015, 85% of marketing organisations will outsource big data analysis" The quality of the data captured and how securely/privately it can be stored, will be the key to successful organisations.

Robotic Engineers will need to develop machines that automate simple laborious work, such as managing warehouse stock.
Bill gates believes that the minimum wage in the United States should motivate individuals to pursue a career outside the area of automated labour.

Joel Woodward's insight:
The use of analytics will continue to grow as companies realise the benefits this software can have on their businesses.
Digitalisation of visual and audible content has already made a huge impact in the entertainment industry. Storing books has never taken up such little room as we have transitioned from the form of paper to electrically charged states of data. These are all forms of either an individual's ideas and works, or a collaboration of people. It is essential that these works can be protected from piracy and unauthorised distribution. Aside from protecting data securely and privately, there will be a greater need for 'cyber police'. These law enforcers will be similar to our current idea of police men and women, though spending their work hours in the internet realm.
