Understanding The Forces of Disruptive Change

Digital Disruption – The 4th Industrial Revolution

The relentless advance of Technology is changing everything. Technology is continuing to get smarter, smaller, faster, more networked, and integrated into everything. Virtual reality, augmented reality, cloud computing, edge computing, quantum computing-based digital assistants, blockchain and 5G, the fifth-generation communications networks, will all be transformative.

Innovative technologies as seen in drones, robotics, self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, 3-D printers, specialized task-focused chips, software as a service and cybersecurity are changing everything. Smart cities, automated factories, remote patient monitoring, the Internet of Things, Google, Amazon, and mobile content streaming are all generating data that is collected and stored in cloud computing systems. The data is analyzed by artificial intelligence looking for patterns and insights, machine learning then tracks changes in the trends and insights, making forecasts. The resulting perspectives and insights are used to drive informed decision-making, for new innovative projects, prototyping, experimentation, learning, new digital business models, and new software-based value propositions, products, and services.

Digitally Enabled Business Models

New innovative technologies amplifying one another’s impact will drive a firm’s future business model, customer value proposition, what products, and services they launch, and their long-term survival. The traditional hierarchical structures that were designed to ensure predictability, conformity, and budget control are being redesigned for speed, agility, and adaptability, blurring industry distinctions.

Established market leaders tied to their old business models are being threatened by digitally disruptive business models that create a superior customer experience and value proposition, at a lower cost. For example, Amazon’s business model involves disruptive technologies, disruptive business partnerships, and disruptive delivery systems.

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is about protecting society, the nation’s increasingly complex and interconnected vital economic infrastructures, government agencies, industries, businesses, hospitals, and individuals who depend on computers, software applications, and networks from attacks by hostile actors.

Disruptive Cybersecurity Laws & Regulations

The principles-based regulatory approach articulates the goals and principles that an organization is expected to follow, without describing the detailed systems design for regulatory compliance. In the rule-based approach, the regulatory compliance process is stipulated in detail, what the regulated entity must do, or cannot do, including recommendations for cybersecurity best practices.

The Demographics are Changing

Multi-generational customers and workforce are creating challenges. Healthcare costs are increasing dramatically. Ten thousand baby boomers are reaching age sixty-five every day, resulting in a loss of leadership and skills from retirements. Millennials are highly educated and technically competent, with an entrepreneurial mindset. Generation Z, the Internet generation, has never known a world without technology.
