Business Innovation and Disruptive Technology: Harnessing the Power of Breakthrough Technology for Competitive Advantage shows you how to profit from the next technological revolution. Nicholas D. Evans explains how to discover powerfully disruptive technologies more quickly, evaluate them more accurately, and implement them more profitably. He presents business-focused introductions to rapidly maturing technologies such as Web services, real-time computing, and P2P, then previews crucial trends like "software as a service," as well as next-generation technologies such as grid computing, electronic tagging, and location-based services.
Once, new and disruptive technologies were restricted to the reckless-or those with nothing to lose. No more. In an era where agility has become utterly crucial to success, every business must effectively exploit emerging technology. In the wake of the Internet bust, it's far more challenging to identify technologies that offer true business value. But the rewards are enormous—as are the risks of failing to do so, or of making the wrong choices.
In Business Innovation and Disruptive Technology: Harnessing the Power of Breakthrough Technology for Competitive Advantage, Nicholas D. Evans presents a systematic framework for choosing emerging technologies, making investments, limiting risk, measuring ROI, and delivering results. Evans reviews the key drivers of the next wave of business and technical innovation, and reviews key technologies now poised for mass-market adoption. He then assesses long-term technology trends—from "software as a service" to next-generation human-computer interfaces—helping you understand and account for their likely implications.
Look elsewhere for "gee whiz": Business Innovation and Disruptive Technology is relentlessly business-focused, with real case studies, real metrics, and serious strategic guidance. Whether you're an executive, board member, line-of-business leader, strategic planner, technical manager, system architect, investor, entrepreneur, or consultant, you'll find no better guide to achieving competitive advantage via the next wave of disruptive technology—and the waves that will follow in its wake.* Not "first mover": smart mover Intelligently applying the right technologies to the right challenges * Extending your radar: Detecting disruptive technologies sooner Scanning the horizon for breakthroughs that can transform your business * The new technology adoption lifecycle Why yesterday's approaches to emerging technology are no longer adequate * Leveraging new technology in a "back to basics" era Refocusing new technology investments on the fundamentals: delivering real and enduring value * Next-generation technologies that are ready for prime time Web services, real-time computing, P2P, business process management, m-business, and enterprise security: achieving real ROI right now * Delivering on the promise of the Internet-finally The "missing links" that'll help you realize the productivity gains and cost reductions the Internet promised * The future: It's closer than you think Three, five, ten years out: planning for the revolutions that still lie ahead"Business Innovation and Disruptive Technology sensitizes every functional and general manager, beyond the CIO and CTO, to the importance of keeping abreast of emerging technologies, and not becoming passive after the dot-com busts. Evans' book provides a practical roadmap for the meaningful application of tomorrow's technologies today, to add real corporate value." —Carl Yankowski
