As the pace of technology change continues to accelerate, organizations are challenged to keep pace, much less get ahead of the competition. In this age of the digital business, it is critical to choose the right technologies that will enhance operations, introduce new products and services, and scale the business overall. The challenge for many companies is bridging the innovation gap – identifying relevant technology trends, fueling innovation internally and seeking innovation within the broader ecosystem.
