A big-picture look at how the latest trends in information management and technology are impacting business models and innovation worldwide...
With all of the recent emphasis on "big data", analytics and visualization, and emerging technology architectures such as smartphone networks, social media, and cloud computing, the way we do business is undergoing rapid change. The right business model can create overnight sensations - think of Groupon, the iPad, or Facebook. At the same time, alternative models for organizing resources such as home schooling, Linux, or Kenya's Ushihidi tool transcend conventional business designs.
Timely and visionary, Information, Technology, and Innovation looks at how the latest technology trends and their impact on human behavior are impacting business practices from recruitment through marketing, supply chains, and customer service.
Revealing why traditional strategy formulation is challenged by the realities of the connected world, Information, Technology, and Innovation ties technology to business and social environments in an approachable, informed manner with innovative, big-picture analysis of what's taking place now in information strategy and technology.

Black Ops Guy
Today, the IT world changes at the speed of light. Today's headlines are obsolete by the weekend. Books are usually stale by the time they hit the shelves of a bookstore.
As an IT Professions on the cutting edge of the industry, I hear about many new services and technologies long before they become public. So I personally found the book as a recap of what has happened in the industry over the past 8 years..
Someone that is not in the IT industry may still find this informative useful, but I would not recommend it to anyone to anyone already in the IT field. You'll be reading about the work the work that the guy you replaced 2 years ago did before he was outsourced.
I found it a bit dated.
Narrator was fine
Nothing. The information presented is common knowledge in the IT industry. It's on the edge of becoming old news.
Book is geared toward someone that is not currently involved with the IT industry. By the time something gets printed on paper and is put on a bookshelf for sale, it will be yesterday's news.
Brilliant, Stimulating, Important
The Master Switch, Tim Wu. Understanding the empirical realities of the technologies that so powerfully impact our lives and the hegemony that controls it is am important concern. Each of these books fills in important aspects of that domain/
It was appropriate and easy to listen to.
Too meaty to listen to in one sitting.
This book has tons of examples, case studies, and real-life stories which make this book fascinating! Every point is followed with real example, which makes the book feel more like an interesting dialog.
Although great, it’s long! 15 hours is a lot to get through…but still worth it!
