    What do you think are the top 3 digital trends that businesses can prepare themselves for in

    2014?

    Technology change is going to be a constant one in this space and it will continue to evolve. I think the biggest change is going

    to be user behaviour. Mobile and digital space is going to be the biggest support system of mankind. People are going to be

    extremely dependent on them. It will be a biggest touch point for customers at all levels from information to transaction to

    engagement.

    How do these trends impact emerging markets in Asia?

    For emerging markets, these trends can potentially put them on a global level. Any potential idea from these markets can cater

    itself to the world at large. It helps them to have a much wider audience and therefore helping them to contribute to overall

    economy.

  • What do you think are the top 3 digital trends that businesses can prepare themselves

    for in 2014?

    Top 3 trends are:

    1. Big Data and Analytics

    Leads to discussion on customer insights, CRM

    2. Digital & Social Media used

    Leads to discussion on the engaging customers, recruitment, brand activities through this platform

    3. Customer Journey

    Leads to discussion on word of mouth, brand communication from digital perspective

    Also, how do these trends impact developed and emerging markets in Asia?

    For our line of business (life insurance, which is in the financial services industry), we have been seeing certain

    shifts. While banks is leading the edge with CRM in its credit card business, life insurance companies are beginning

    to be more customer-focused.

    The evolvement of customer analytics help life insurance companies better understand customer demands.

    Currently, customers have the flexibility to choose the insurance term, period of payment, premium to pay,

    investment funds are more in their insurance products.

    With the shifting focus to establish customer experience while improving customer engagement, initiatives such as

    e-application processing, e-claim submission and loyalty programmes are introduced by life insurance companies in

    both developed and emerging markets. Loyalty programmes are presented in a way to show how life insurance

    company is transforming its position to be more consumer-focused.

    Life insurance companies are moving towards utilising digital and social media platform to inform, engage, and

    educate customers. This trend has been increasingly developed in the past five years. For life insurance companies

    with an international presence, they are focused on integrating these initiatives; they will then be conducted in

    developed nations and subsequently applied to emerging markets.

  • What do you think are the top 3 digital trends that businesses can prepare themselves for in 2014?

    In my opinion, there are three main trends of information technology in the future:

    1. Presence of wearable devices

    For the wearable device, it can be seen from some smartphone manufacturers who have began to introduce and launch wearable

    devices such as smart watch and smart glass (e.g. Google Galaxy Glass and Glass). We will see body accessories replaced by

    smart devices.

    2. Development of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications

    M2M will also evolve, including smart houses and smart cities. In Indonesia, M2M is also used to monitor the state of tax revenue

    from restaurants, parking taxes and many more.

    3. Content and applications will remain king

    Application and content will still be king. Moving forward, these will be more localised due to emotional and language factors; local

    content allows users to access and use it more easily. Content will evolve to educate and entertain in industries such as finance,

    education, healthcare and government. In addition, it will be used as a communication tool between users.

    How do these trends impact developed and emerging markets in Asia?

    The industry needs to pay attention to these trends and constantly provide relevant services to the market.

    What do you think are the top 3 digital trends that businesses can prepare themselves for in

    2014?

    Here are the top 3 technology trends I see in 2014:

    Firstly, TV-connected smart devices (Xbox, PlayStation, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, etc) will truly become

    mainstream for media content consumption (beyond just games), offering consumers an integrated and smart

    entertainment hub that is centered around the largest screen in ones house.

    Secondly, The Internet of Things (IoT) will start to take off, starting with wearable devices (glasses, watches, etc.), and

    eventually into home automation devices as well.

    Finally, low-end smartphones and tablets will continue to get cheaper and cheaper, enabling a whole new group of

    emerging market consumers to get online with a richer experience than before. As a result, telcos in emerging markets

    have no choice but to continue to invest and build out their infrastructure to support this new demand.

    Obviously, #1 and #2 will have the most impact in developed markets, and #3 in emerging markets.

    What do you think are the top 3 digital trends that businesses can prepare themselves for in

    2014?

    In 2013, we saw the continued change of the advertising landscape in keeping up with the pace of shifts in consumer media

    habits. 2014 will be another year of rapid solution for marketers. Here are three trends that we believe we will see this year:

    1. As time spent on digital networks, especially mobile, increases, primetime will be all the time.

    Every day, people spend more time on their mobile devices and engage more on digital platforms than any other media.

    Reaching consumers at scale is no longer restricted to historical "primetime" definitions. Brands can now reach people with

    incredibly relevant content anytime, anywhere at scale.

    2. Mobile is here to stay.

    Mobile is an always-on media. As the first truly global technology, a marketers online strategy should be synonymous withtheir mobile strategy. Marketers will rely more heavily on platforms like Facebook, especially on mobil
