“When technology defines your future, what you sell, how you sell it, who you sell it to and what they do with it once they have it changes forever! That’s disruption, and it’s an entirely different future!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Disruption is real, it’s big, and it’s happening faster than you think. And it’s really just a big technology story.
The facts are, no matter who you are, or what industry you work in – it’s coming at you.
One reason has to do with the fact that multiple trends are now coming together that impact your industry. Individually, any trend is disruptive. Combine them together, and it’s transformative.
3D printing, exponentiating bandwidth, hyper-connectivity, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robotics, neural networks, deep analytics, autonomous vehicles, Bitcoin and blockchain, self-learning systems. Pick one – it’s big. Combine them – it’s explosive!
All of these trends and more are merging together, leading to a massively new, connected, intelligent machine that will transform, change, challenge and disrupt every industry.
What does it mean? Eventually, every industry becomes a software industry.
From healthcare to insurance, home appliances to automotive, manufacturing to packaging, retail to sports & fitness, energy to agriculture: every industry is seeing massive change as it becomes enabled, challenged and transformed by technology and connectivity.
From precision agriculture to self-driving cars, smart clothing to connected microwaves, remote medical monitoring devices to active packaging — every company in every industry is becoming a computer company, with software and technology at its heart and soul. This changes everything!
The kicker? Moore’s law will now define the speed of change for you.
It’s the rule that defines that the processing power of a computer chip constantly increases while the cost collapses at an exponential rate — and that speed of change is coming to drive the speed of innovation in every single industry as we all become tech companies!
Get ready for the era of acceleration – it’s coming at you fast!
