Transforming Disruptive Technology into Innovative Solutions

Barb Pellow Group Director, InfoTrends


By doing what good companies were supposed to do—focus on pleasing their most profitable customers—companies of all sizes may be paving the way for their own demise. How? By ignoring disruptive technologies—new, cheaper innovations that may evolve to displace traditional products and solutions. In 2003, Harvard Professor Clay Christensen and co-author Mike Raynor wrote a best seller entitled The Innovator’s Solution. The authors explained that innovators create disruptions rather than be destroyed by them. Companies need to turn innovative ideas and technologies into new disruptive products and services that will lead to long term profitable growth. Traditional printing is a mature industry that is being significantly impacted by new media. This session will discuss how to turn disruptive new media innovations into solutions that will lead to long-term profitable growth. InfoTrends Group Leader, Barb Pellow will share perspectives on how emerging technologies are impacting our industry as well as examples of how successful firms are harnessing technology to transform their business.
