We are standing on the edge of a technological revolution that will fundamentally change our lives unlike anything humankind has experienced before.
With the billions of people connected to Internet on mobile, the expansive crowd-sourcing knowledge available and the ever-increasing predictive processing capabilities – possibilities have become infinite. These possibilities will be multiplied as a result of emerging technology developments in countless fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing and renewal energy.
The 4.7 billion mobile phone owners in 2016 illustrate this massive expansion. Peer-to-peer music platforms have demonstrated how technology has reached a huge number of adopters in a reduced amount of time, paving the way to the development of new products and services, dramatically improving the experience and disrupting established business models. Booking a flight, renting a private home for a holiday, ordering a cab and paying without cash are just few examples of what can be done at the tip of our fingertips on mobile phones these days.
The platform ecosystems and the acceleration of technology innovation, combined with the velocity of business model disruptions are becoming complex to anticipate. Even the most connected and best informed business leaders need to set aside their most natural survival instincts in order to understand this fast changing environment, challenge the assumptions of their operating teams and continuously innovate for long term existence.
