Comments on Looking for Business Innovation in all the Right PlacesBoston SIM Consultants' Roundtable Blog2012-05-04T17:22:08Zhttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/it-consulting/looking-for-business-innovation-in-all-the-right-places/feed/atom/By: Beth CohenBeth Cohenhttp://luthcomputer.comhttp://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/it-consulting/?p=100#comment-42009-07-01T11:35:43Z2009-07-01T11:35:43ZYour comments are in agreement with my opinion. There is enormous opportunity for innovation on the business side of technology, but my point is that in this unstable economic climate, innovators, venture capitalists (who always want to hedge their bets) are gravitating to investing in technology that has a higher likelihood of acceptance. The consumer market with its profile of huge numbers of cheap widgit sales has more potential than the business market.

You point out the continued pressure all companies are feeling in order to run more efficiently, which is going to be a continuing reality over the next several months. It is critical for an organization to leverage technological breakthroughs that allow for increased visibility and control into operations. Seeing this information in real time and allowing access to all knowledge workers dramatically cuts down on the use of valuable resources and prevents the enterprise from getting bogged down in its own IT.
