Michael Biltz leads Accenture's Vision R&D group and the enterprise's annual technology visioning process. Through Accenture's Technology Vision, Michael defines Accenture's perspective on the future of technology beyond the current conversations about social, cloud, mobility, and big data to focus on how technology will impact the way we work and live. From augmented reality and blockchain to artificial intelligence, this year's report - Technology Vision 2019 - outlines the new post-digital world that forward-thinking C-level executives will use to position their organizations to shape the next generations of their markets, rather than focusing on cost-cutting and efficiency improvements.
The Technology Vision is used externally to help Accenture's Global 2000 clients filter through the changes in the technology marketplace to understand the changes in technology that will impact them over the next three to five years. Internally, Accenture uses it to guide research, development, and investments.
Michael holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University.
