How many emails your kid sent in a day?

Innovation and adoption in IT is moving at a very fast pace that it is sometimes difficult to imagine that the tool we are so accustomed of using everyday might be coming to an end of its life. Yes I am talking about Email, the tool on which we devote currently 50-70% of time we are awake. I hope this must have not come as a surprise to you. Whenever I have made this bold statement in front of others the immediate reaction is of denial and lot of reasons are given on why this is not possible. This denial phase is not going to change the destiny.
I simply ask one question to everyone I have mentioned. The question is: “ How many emails your kid send in a day?”

Every person took a pause, after a brief thought to the presented scenario responded with accepting the unbelievable. The gen Z do not use email as tool for communication they prefer social media platforms. A similar shift we saw in my one of the large organisation where Google+ was adopted. The Australian retail group with 200,000+ employees experienced a sudden growth of Google+ communities.

A similar shift we saw in my one of the large organisation where Google+ was adopted. The Australian retail group with 200,000+ employees experienced a sudden growth of Google+ communities. These online communities increased the collaboration and flow of fast information exchange between teams and external partners. The social media enabled first time CEO to send a message which instantly reached to all 200,000+ employees. The G+ communities were created for everything, project teams shared all the details reports etc. The other benefit was global exposure and knowledge.

We all have used forums in our internet life either to get a review on a product or service, looking for issue resolution or just sharing the similar interest and ideas. In our busy life we already struggle for work life balance, the opportunity to pursue other interests goes to the bottom of our list. Since I am on Google+ I have joined communities of my interest and I get notifications on any new development or news. Its not commercially run process hence you know that information will not be biased. Our end users in Enterprises have been suffering from obsolete technologies from a decade now. The efficiencies within organisations have been ignored. 

The changing landscape of IT has now opened gates for any business size to adopt innovative technology without worrying the impact on the wallet.

What CEO can learn from a teenager?

Our civilisation has experienced several significant economic eras starting from the iron age, to the agricultural era, to the industrial age to the recent information age. The iron age lasted a few hundred centuries leading to the agricultural era of a few centuries to the industrial revolution of a couple of centuries before surrendering to the information age that is only a few decades old.
Our history not only shows the evolution of our economic patterns and growth and technology improvements that have dramatically changed the way we live and earn, but also illustrates the dramatic shortening of each phase of development.
We are already on the cusp of the end of the information age and heading to the augmentation and digital economic age.  The advent of this new Digital Transformation era cannot be ignored by any organisation that wishes to survive and thrive in this new age.
The irony I see around me is that most organisations are handing over the keys to this transformation to peo…

Digital Disruption: Are you prepared !!

Digital DisruptionAre you prepared?How real is the threat?

I come from a culture where survival of the fittest is the mantra you are taught DAY 1. The fight to make something out of life to ensure you are well respected in society, have enough money as security to offer your kids a good education and lifestyle.
I have seen many around me, live their lives in just making sure that they are fulfilling what has expected out of them whether it comes to job or family.

One who has been able to break this chain reaction have offered back the society something innovative, but they paid the price through either living below standards or never got recognised while alive.


"Digital disruption is a transformation that is caused by emerging digital technologies and business models. These innovative new technologies and models can impact the value of existing products and services offered in the industry. This is why the term ‘disruption’ is used, as the emergence of …
