How-to guidance for optimizing incumbent technologies to deliver a better product and gain competitive advantage... Their zip codes are far from Silicon Valley. Their SIC codes show retail, automobile, or banking. But industry after industry is waking up to the opportunity of ´´smart´´ products and services for their increasingly tech-savvy customers. Traditionally technology buyers, they are learning to embed technology in their products and become technology vendors. In turn, if you analyze Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and eBay, you marvel at their data centers, retail stores, application ecosystems, global supply chains, design shops. They are considered ´´consumer´´ tech but have better technology at larger scale than most enterprises. The old delineation of technology buyer and vendor is obsolete. There is a new definition for the technology elite - and you find them across industries and geographies. The 17 case studies and 4 guest columns spread through The New Technology Elite bring out the elite attributes in detail. Every organization will increasingly be benchmarked against these elite - and soon will be competing against them.Contrasts the productivity that Apple, Google, and others have demonstrated in the last decade to that of the average enterprise technology groupReveals how to leverage what companies have learned from Google, Apple, Amazon.com, and Facebook to your company´s advantageDesigned for business practitioners, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, technology vendors, venture capitalists, IT consultants, marketing executives, and policy makersOther titles by Vinnie Mirchandani: The New Polymath: Profiles in Compound-Technology Innovations If you´re looking to encourage technology innovation, look no further.

Nobody likes banks and, for a lot of people, it´s for good reason. You go to the teller window five minutes before closing time and she won´t acknowledge you because she just wants to close up and go home. Your Paypal account is tied to the banking system and they may yank your account access simply because you got an unusually large payment for something you sold on eBay. You wonder if the homeless aren´t caught in some kind of Catch-22 where they can´t get access to a decent apartment without a bank account and can´t get a bank account without a photo ID that includes their home address. All of these are good points that could be solved with a new digital currency called Bitcoin. Bitcoin is always open for business and won´t ignore you even when you want to use it to have a pizza delivered at two in the morning. It won´t shut you out simply because you received a transaction worth thousands of dollars from someone buying your car. If you want to use it, literally all you need to do is download the wallet on a laptop or tablet. This is made possible by technology that doesn´t care about much of anything except whether you have a device that can link to the Internet even if it means soaking up the free Wi-Fi at the coffee shop and the ability to copy-and-paste a string of letters and numbers or scan a QR code. It´s called the Blockchain, a decentralized ledger that keeps track of debits and credits for all Bitcoin users. There are many ways that the Blockchain can benefit entrepreneurs beyond the fact that it´s associated with a currency that makes fraudulent chargebacks impossible. It can be used for many applications that require a reliable and tamper-resistant means of record-keeping. It can be used to give you a competitive edge in a world where the economy is becoming increasingly global and customers increasingly care about how their goods are produced and can hop from one thing to the next pretty fast. If you´re looking at the Blockcha 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. Alexander. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/074001/bk_acx0_074001_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Jack Ma is the founder and CEO of the Alibaba Group, a privately owned Internet-based e-commerce company in China whose sales are estimated to be bigger than its American competitors eBay and Amazon.com combined. This book reveals a Jack Ma different from your imagination. How did Jack overcome his humble origins and early failures to achieve massive success with Alibaba? How did he outsmart rival entrepreneurs from China and Silicon Valley? Can Alibaba maintain its 80% market share? Jack Ma is a man who does not see failure as an option, not a final one anyway. Ma has been through more failure than success in his life, we just don´t hear much about it because his success has been so big! Ma´s education through failure more than traditional channels has shaped a man that is globally savvy, compassionate and fiercely passionate about entrepreneurship. He recently shared with Charlie Rose, ´´I failed a key primary school test two times, I failed the middle school test three times, I failed the college entrance exam two times and when I graduated, I was rejected for most jobs I applied for out of college.´´ (Ma was one of five applicants to the police force and the only one to be rejected. Then there is the application as one of 24 applicants to be a KFC manager and also be rejected. ´´I applied for Harvard 10 times, got rejected 10 times and I told myself that someday I should go teach there.´´ Even in the early success of Alibaba Ma was told by Silicon Valley venture capitalists that his business model was wholly unprofitable and he was sent back to China unfunded. In the face of all this adversity Ma did not give up, give in or blame; he just continued to try. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Montanez.
