Organisations are being exposed to an increasingly dynamic and fast-paced technology landscape. Service providers and consultants, the media, and policy makers are constantly promoting or discussing emerging technologies that may have a substantial – and systemic – impact on our economies and societies. As individuals and as employees, we need to be informed about what technologies are likely to have the most impact, as well as their underlying concepts and potential. This will help us to be informed – and will help our organisations make informed choices.
