We are at two crossroads. The first is centered around fundamental operational realities that are beginning to take hold in many markets, combined with the notion that traditional methods for alleviating these accumulating pressures are proving less than optimal. Technology is being positioned as the force multiplier that will solve these issues.

The second crossroad is centered around the outlook and fortunes of companies that supply technologies and technology-based services. The rapid growth of many of these companies was built around the consumer market or founded on IT and is now plateauing.

Our second annual BIG Trends Impacting the Most Compelling Transformative Technologies: 19 1-Minute Reads whitepaper will provide a first step in giving more clarity on technological choice, business application relevancy, and investment priority.
