Trend 5 - Technology Vision 2017
Businesses are not just creating new products and services; they’re shaping new digital industries. From technology standards, to ethical norms, to government mandates, in an ecosystem-driven digital economy, one thing is clear: a wide scope of rules still needs to be defined.
To fulfill their digital ambitions, companies must take on a leadership role to help shape the new rules of the game. Those who take the lead will find a place at or near the center of their new ecosystem, while those that don’t risk being left behind.
To thrive, companies must shift from market taker to market shaper: not only will successful organizations blaze a new trail in products and services, but they will also have to set the guideposts for it – from ethical standards, to industry best practices, and beyond.
