Megatrends: The global changes shaping business and society
Know the future to prepare for today
We believe that organisations like Fujitsu have a responsibility not just to our customers and shareholders, but to society as a whole.
IT has the power to help solve large global challenges, but it cannot do it by itself. Only with the right partnerships and the right approach can we together build a safer, more prosperous and sustainable place to live and work.
Talk to us about how we can help you transform your business in order to be ready for the challenges and opportunities that megatrends bring.
How will the global megatrends of today affect your organisation?
- The world’s population just passed the mark of 7 billion and continues to grow by 75 million a year
- In developed countries, life expectancy has now reached 77 years and continues to rise
- 70% of the 29,000 child deaths that occur each day, mostly in developing countries, could be prevented with proper access to medical resources
- 54% of the world’s population live in urban areas in 2014. By 2050, 66% of the world’s population is projected to be in urban areas
As the world population grows, we are seeing significant challenges in the areas of resource management, food supply, healthcare, water and energy transport management, resource management, disaster mitigation and protecting our environment.
All organisations across all sectors will be affected by the big changes that we face nationally and globally. They have the ability to reshape the way organisations think and operate. These implications are addressed in our first group of thought leadership papers on the megatrends that are reshaping business and society and highlights the role that Fujitsu is already taking in responding to these challenges.
