Discussion: Technological Innovations & Trends
Technology has advanced, and continuously advances us, in directions we never dreamed imaginable. Much of what we know about the recent past (as of 2013) revolutionizes the business industry, primarily in the form of data analysis. What type of data is it? Where does it come from? Who controls it? Who influences it? Are we ready for the answers? How transparent will we be about what we find out?
The McKinsey Institute is quite a useful source about all things tech. Please consider using it for your future research. One of their articles that will stimulate our discussion is included on this page. Please take note of visuals when they are are offered since the organization does a great job with both presenting visual data and offering an effective interpretation of the data.
