MELBOURNE, Australia, May�28, 2008 — Social networking technologies, web mashups, multicore and hybrid processors and cloud computing are amongst the ten most disruptive technologies [1] that will shape the information technology (IT) landscape over the next five years, according to research and advisory firm Gartner, Inc. Speaking at the Gartner Emerging Trends and Technologies Roadshow in Melbourne today, Gartner Fellow David Cearley said that business IT applications will start to mirror the features found in popular consumer social software, such as Facebook and MySpace, as organisations look ...
that improve a product or service in ways that the market does not expect, typically by lowering price or designing for a different set of consumers. In contrast to "disruptive innovation", a "sustaining" innovation does not have an effect on existing markets. Sustaining innovations may be either "discontinuous" 1 (i.e. "transformational") or "continuous" (i.e. "evolutionary"). Transformational innovations are not always disruptive. Although the automobile was a transformational innovation, it was not a disruptive innovation, because early automobiles were expensive ...

In any market where technology evolves faster than the majority of consumers’ needs, large numbers of consumers find themselves willing to use lower-end products simply because they do not require the cutting-edge. A disruptive technology is a market innovation offering increased value for money, convenience or efficiency at the expense of not being the pinnacle of a given market, and so appeals to consumers who only require that a product be ‘good enough’ for their purpose. Once a disruptive technology gains a foothold in a market, it can begin to refine itself and expand its market niche upwards. Eventually even the pinnacle ... market research, surveys and trends

The Innovator's Dilemma
     When I began my search for an answer to the puzzle of why the best firms can fail, a friend offered some sage advice. "Those who study genetics avoid studying humans," he noted. "Because new generations come along only every thirty years or so, it takes a long time to understand the cause and effect of any changes. Instead, they study fruit flies, because they are conceived, born, mature, and die all within a single day. If you want to understand why something happens in business, study the disk drive industry. Those companies are the closest things to fruit flies that the business world ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Another conservative teacher here, stepping up to the plate! It has been good recently to see teachers speaking up on American Thinker. I believe that our public education system will not be repaired until teachers speak truthfully and publicly about their own classrooms. Like the ICE union members, they must protest the travesty that has been made of their calling.  How bad are public schools? Much worse than most people realize. So bad that they blight the futures of the young people in them. So bad that if we don't turn back the clock to real education, we will most certainly lose our republic.   It is a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Are you engaging the 'disruptive' element of digital technology…or ...
Where does your organization sit in Clayton Christensen's disruptive/sustaining technologies continuum? I believe we can cleave digital media as a single technology into both "disruptive" elements and "sustaining" elements. For example, the commercial utility of the social media for monitoring and responding to customers and their comments/attitudes/claims/behaviors towards brands is now firmly in the 'sustainable' basket. Who needs more convincing? Is anyone really now saying "show me the money?" But is that all there is to the commercial application of digital communication technologies? What about the rest ...
