Synopsis: A big?picture look at how the latest trends in information management and technology are impacting business models and innovation worldwide

With all of the recent emphasis on "big data," analytics and visualization, and emerging technology architectures such as smartphone networks, social media, and cloud computing, the way we do business is undergoing rapid change. The right business model can create overnight sensations think of Groupon, the iPad, or Facebook. At the same time, alternative models for organizing resources such as home schooling, Linux, or Kenya?s Ushihidi tool transcend conventional business designs. Timely and visionary, Information, Technology, and the Future of Commerce looks at how the latest technology trends and their impact on human behavior are impacting business practices from recruitment through marketing, supply chains, and customer service.

  • Discusses information economics, human behavior, technology platforms, and other facts of contemporary life
  • Examines how humans organize resources and do work in the changing landscape
  • Provides case studies profiling how competitive advantage can be a direct result of innovative business models that exploit these trends

Revealing why traditional strategy formulation is challenged by the realities of the connected world, Information, Technology, and the Future of Commerce ties technology to business and social environments in an approachable, informed manner with innovative, big?picture analysis of what?s taking place now in information strategy and technology.

From the Back Cover:

Change has never happened so fast.

How can individuals and organizations respond?

Technology is changing the fundamentals of how we do business, but few organizations can meet the challenge of innovating and executing at this speed. Familiar leaders like Amazon, Apple, eBay, Facebook, and Google make up a short list; benchmarking them is not an option for most companies. Instead, Information, Technology, and Innovation shows you how to think more broadly and see deeper patterns in order to take advantage of the many emerging capabilities that will transform your business.

Exploring the intersection of our connecting technologies and our institutions, and the changes that come to business as a result, author John Jordan a clinical professor and expert in IT strategy ties technology to the business and social environment in an approachable, informed manner, covering a broad range of topics including:

  • The "Net" generation

  • Behavioral and information economics

  • Security and risk

  • The many implications of power laws for business

  • Crowdsourcing and other organizational innovations

  • Mobile phone industry impact

  • Internet principles

  • Location, mobility, and identity

  • Cloud computing and the enterprise

Seven case studies review how emerging technology has disrupted long?standing business models in data and communications, software, music, news, health care, retail, and real estate. Plus, each chapter concludes with a "Looking Ahead" section, laying out potential obstacles you may face along the way, strategies to overcome them, and opportunities that await you.

A must?read for investors, managers, and executives, Information, Technology, and Innovation helps you better anticipate and capitalize on the powerful technology changes that define our interconnected world.
