The right technology requires the right culture
Consumed => “Gartner: Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends For 2013″ by Eric Savitz on Forbes.
=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…
Now what would be both interesting and helpful would be for you / Forbes to take this list and matrix it to the skill sets and culture(s) needed to apply them optimally.
For example, Strategic Big Data and Actionable Analytics is not just about hoarding data. It’s not even about having quants to slice & dice it. Most importantly, it (as I understand it) also takes a (forward thinking) culture that embraces data driven decision making. Perhaps I’m reading the wrong articles on the wrong websites but I’m not so sure the latter is a reality in (too) many cases.
p.s. I’m not critiquing the article / list. What it is, it is. I’m simply suggesting it be taken a step or two further to add some real value to these insights.
