Many industry professionals are pontificating on what 2016 will bring in the world of technology. Information Today brought us this latest incarnation in their article, “What Trends May Come in 2016.”

A variety of information industry experts have shared their insights and predictions in this and other articles. One thing that is consistent is the growth of information technology. The industry of information, media, and technology is a blend of fast-growing software, services, and tech companies and moderate-growth traditional content publishers and media.

Search and aggregation continues as the growth front-runner. However automation, analytics, and customer relationship management (CRM) are not far behind and are expected to challenge the front runner over the next year.

There are many reasons why this is expected and a few are shared here:

1. Millennials and their different work style.

2. Machines are getting smarter.

3. The Internet is losing to apps.

One thing that hasn’t change is the importance of choosing the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
