We’re living in an era of constant innovation and technological disruption, and that is having a dramatic effect on the business of doing business. Half the companies in the year 2000’s Fortune 500 have fallen off the list. And while it used to take Fortune 500 companies 20 years to reach a billion-dollar valuation, today’s digital start-ups do it in four. Tomorrow … who knows?
The moral of the story is clear: If you’re not disrupting, you risk being disrupted. In retail, in smart cities, in telco, in healthcare, in manufacturing the key to success in today’s business landscape is to leverage the power of innovation enabled with adoption of emerging technologies to ensure that the pace of change works for you, not against you.
