In order to stay successful in the post-digital era, companies will have to acquire a wide range of innovations based on DARQ technologies. These are distributed ledgers (D), artificial intelligence (A), extended reality (R), and quantum computing (Q). If companies want to thrive in the post-digital world, they will have to master DARQ technologies, Accenture Technology says. Experts reckon that this will open up doors to innovative business solutions. On top of that, analysts believe that a convergence of new technologies will cause serious changes in the global economy. Currently, 89% of companies experiment with one or several DARQs. Some of them have already increased their investments in this innovation.
