In the first half of 2023, the question of whether a recession was looming was met with great uncertainty. As the economy is well into the second half of 2023, economists are showing more optimism that the feared recession may never come – in fact, Goldman Sachs reduced its prediction of a recession, lowering the odds of it happening from 35 percent to 25 percent.
Still with tumultuous interest rates and rising inflation, the thought of tight economic times has organisations considering how to create tailwinds to help the bottom line during tough times. In fact, at the beginning of the pandemic, when economic uncertainty was high, a McKinsey survey showed that executives believed technology was the biggest opportunity for growth.
Why? Simply put, investments in technology can be a more nimble approach to gaining efficiencies and optimising processes in order to do more with less. This investment in technology is even more critical as an unfortunate side effect of recessions tends to be a reduction in workforce.
Digital investment has become more affordable for several reasons:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a strong approach to digital investment to create economic tailwinds because of its ability to enhance processes or even create new revenue streams. IoT is applicable across industries, from agriculture to industrial, and can mitigate workforce challenges, increase uptime, and deliver analytical results for the greatest, data-driven decision-making.
