Emerging technologies and the impact of technology on society

Tim Zanni says we are living in one of the most disruptive periods of tech evolution since the Internet first entered the scene.


By Barbara K. Mednick

Technology innovation is critical to all kinds of businesses around the world and greatly impacts our society. In fact, we are living in one of the most disruptive periods of tech evolution since the Internet first entered the scene decades ago.

That’s why tech business leaders will need to provide more transparency about how artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies work and what impact they may have on society.

That’s according to a new Technology Innovation Survey, whose findings came as no surprise to Tim Zanni, KPMG’s Global and U.S. Technology Sector Leader and Chair of Global and U.S. Technology, Media & Telecommunications.

With more than 35 years of significant global experience, he builds relationships and advises the firm’s largest technology accounts. He’ll tell you that disruptive technologies and new business models are triggering a formal re-evaluation of corporate strategies.

For example, CEOs across different industries are beginning to have a greater focus on the tremendous economic and social power that has resulted from the tech industry’s leadership and innovation, according to KPMG’s 2018 CEO survey.

Zanni is a respected voice on a wide range of technology topics and is particularly knowledgeable about:

  • The changing landscape of disruptive technologies
  • Embracing disruption with innovation
  • How artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies work and what impact they may have on society
  • How disruptive technologies and new business models are triggering a formal re-evaluation of corporate strategies

In his role as Global and U.S. Technology Sector Leader and Chair of Global and U.S. Technology, Media & Telecommunications, Zanni is focused on representing the firm in the market, developing marketplace strategies, leading the growth and success of the firm’s global technology industry, and ensuring that clients receive exceptional service.
