ABI has researched 20 of the most compelling transformative technologies and has identified the top three big trends — that go well beyond 2018! — for each of those disciplines. The trends report is titled: 1-Minute Reads for 3 BIG Trends Impacting Each of the 20 Most Compelling Transformative Technologies.
Transformative technologies relate to the stages of innovation, a concept dating back to the late 1990s. Current innovation focuses on the business-as-usual now, while disruptive innovation centers on disrupting the status quo by phasing out established practices. Technologies in the first two stages — the traditional and temporary Internet and IT technologies — have goals of reducing costs, improving efficiencies as well as offering product improvements or service enhancements. The third and most important stage, transformative innovation, however, emphasizes the long term. As a result, the goals of transformative technologies go much further and much larger. They are the technologies that create deep business changes, not marginal ones.
