It is almost impossible to keep up with the pace and direction in which business and technology are moving today.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. AUTOMATION. BLOCKCHAIN. BIG DATA. INTERNET OF THINGS. THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.
Who actually knows what any of these concepts mean for their business, much less how to integrate them? Things are moving at a faster pace than ever before and trying to keep up has become intimidating and overwhelming. It’s tempting to bury your head in the sand than try to make head or tail of it all. But none of the buzzwords actually matter! You don’t have to jump aboard every single change and adjustment in the market, or trade in your suit for a T-shirt, jeans and sneaker combo. If you have the right context, it’s a lot simpler to understand and use technological shifts as an opportunity to transform your business.
Tech Adjacent is about understanding the principles of tech and its pace, hearing the footsteps of where it might be going, knowing how disruption and innovation work tangibly and, most importantly, leveraging it for your individual exponential success. Innovation is contextual, so while Uber, Airbnb and Facebook are grandiose Silicon Valley success stories, they have little relevance in our own market. This book shares stories and case studies of African businesses, exposing who is getting disrupted as we speak and why, as well as how new companies are leading the next wave of growth. Mushambi Mutuma’s experience and expertise in both business and as a tech entrepreneur give real-life context to rapid change, unlocking future opportunities and offering tools to predict where your audience and industry are heading. He sells no big ideas, but genuinely shares his unique perspectives and know-how to help whoever he can in the process.
Tech Adjacent isn’t just another book on growing your business in 100 days, nor is it dry academic theory. It is the guidebook for not only surviving but excelling in a world of exponential growth. Whether you are a start-up entrepreneur or a corporate executive, this guide is a must for both present and future leaders.
Felix Klein, one of the great nineteenth-century geometers, discovered in mathematics an idea prefigured in Buddhist mythology: the heaven of Indra contained a net of pearls, each of which was reflected in its neighbour, so that the whole Universe was mirrored in each pearl. Klein studied infinitely repeated reflections and was led to forms with multiple coexisting symmetries. For a century, these images barely existed outside the imagination of mathematicians. However, in the 1980s, the authors embarked on the first computer exploration of Klein's vision, and in doing so found many further extraordinary images. Join the authors on the path from basic mathematical ideas to the simple algorithms that create the delicate fractal filigrees, most of which have never appeared in print before. Beginners can follow the step-by-step instructions for writing programs that generate the images. Others can see how the images relate to ideas at the forefront of research.

This title is meant to convey the emphasis which is now placed on the valuable contents of the safe (the information) rather than just on the safe in which those contents are stored (the computer). It should also convey to potential readers the impact of information communication technologies on the law, the increasing importance of telecommunications law and legal aspects of electronic commerce and the convergence between these fields and IT law.
The Plot to Get Bill Gates brings a fresh perspective to the avaricious, bloodthirsty behaviour of business icons and to the personality of Bill Gates himself. The result is a funny morality play about big business at the century''s end.'
Where and who do we want to be? How might we get there? What might happen if we stay on our current course? The Future of Stuff asks what kind of world will we live in when every item of property has a digital trace, when nothing can be lost and everything has a story. Will property and ownership become as fluid as film is today: summoned on demand, dismissed with a swipe? What will this mean for how we buy, rent, share and dispose of stuff? About what our stuff says about us? And how will this impact on us, on manufacturing and supply, and on the planet? This brief but mighty book is one of five that comprise the first set of FUTURES essays. Each standalone book presents the author's original vision of a singular aspect of the future which inspires in them hope or reticence, optimism or fear. Read individually, these essays will inform, entertain and challenge. Together, they form a picture of what might lie ahead, and ask the reader to imagine how we might make the transition from here to there, from now to then.
Edward Huizenga explores how knowledge and service intensive companies can thrive on innovation and entrepreneurship in the ICT sector. He applies new theoretical insights from strategy and organisation theory, and includes case studies of 30 European service companies. These case studies address the key innovation issues and present answers as to why a constant search for innovation improves firms' competitive position. The key success factors are identified together with those differences that define the frontrunners who are able to turn new ideas into profit. With its mix of academic insights, managerial practices and implementations, this book benchmarks company performance in innovation and develops new theoretical strategy insights including; resource-based ideas; firm's innovation styles; strategic timing; the customer's involvement and the management implications. Innovation Management in the ICT Sector is aimed at, and will be of value to, a readership of academics in the area of strategic management, organisation and innovation, policymakers involved in innovation and economic growth at all levels of government as well as managers in the ICT sector.
