How Technology is Shaping Marketing in the Next Decade

If you took a reasonably competent marketer from 2007 and transported her to today, much of what she knew about her job would be irrelevant. Ten years ago, social media was in its infancy. Nobody even heard of mobile marketing, content marketing or big data. The iPhone hadn’t even been launched yet. We’re at a. Innovation

FinTech Startups Are Democratizing Finance and Incumbents Must Adapt

Rocketspace

The financial crisis of 2007 chipped away at the trust that many people used to have in traditional providers of financial services. This loss of faith, combined with the new technologies and an influx of money into fintech startups, has led to the creation of innovative new financial products and services, ones that put financial control back into the hands of consumers.

How Facebook misses out on Talent

Destination Innovation

There are pervasive myths that older people are stuck in their ways, lack creativity and dynamism and cannot cope with new technology. In 2007 at age 22 Mark Zuckerberg profoundly stated, ‘Younger people are just smarter. Of course some older people are complacent, stubborn and technology averse – but so are some youngsters. Consider these examples: Steve Jobs was 52 when as CEO of Apple he launched the iPhone in 2007.

Why Government is Essential for Private Sector Innovation

Destination Innovation

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone to the world on 9 January 2007. But as the economists, Marianna Mazzucato and Tim Harford, have shown, the iPhone could not have been a success without at least 12 technology innovations on which it is dependent. The remarkable thing which Mazzucato points out is that all these technologies were initially funded partly or wholly by government (and usually defence) agencies.

Innovation Lessons from the Master, Steve Jobs

Destination Innovation

The marriage of aesthetics and technology became his life-long obsession. The Apple iPhone was launched in 2007 and became the market leader in the mobile phone market. Steve Jobs was adopted at birth in 1955. He grew up in California. He dropped out of college but voluntarily took a course in calligraphy. He found it beautiful and fascinating. Jobs led a company which embodied the combination of art and science. He was an eclectic revolutionary.

Continuous Improvement and Breakthrough Innovation: Why You Need Both

IdeaScale

The iPhone was considered a true innovation back in 2007, opening up an entirely new approach to telecommunications and changing how people used phones forever. Yet even that breakthrough innovation was built upon decades of smaller innovations in telecommunications, internet technology, and computing technology. Innovation has to come from somewhere.

Lack of Innovation Will Kill Your Business (2 Examples to Prove It)

It all started in January 2007 when Steve Jobs walked onto a stage and presented the iPhone. In 2007, Nokia’s market share was at. In 2007 they were accredited with almost half of the profits in the mobile-phone industry, but most of those were not owing to smartphones. They were in fact the first to use this technology. Instead of marketing the new technology, Kodak chose to use digital for improving the quality of film.

Is It Possible for Companies to Over-Innovate?

IdeaScale

So they went with the Keurig Kold , which, technologically speaking, is a fairly impressive machine. Motorola’s RAZR and RIM’s BlackBerry were cutting-edge until 2007 when the iPhone arrived and made both of them utterly irrelevant in the time it took to explain what an “iPhone” even was. Remember when this was the height of innovation? Is it really possible to “over-innovate?” It seems baffling, on the face of it.

Avoid the Iridium Moment

Another example given by Ismail is Nokia’s purchase of Navteq for a staggering $8B in 2007. If you have to make a massive strategic decision then check your assumptions right up to the last minute and be on the lookout for emerging technologies which could undermine your grand plan. Every company has to make important strategic decisions. We can see with hindsight that some decisions which looked smart at the time turned out to be dumb.

PLAYING IT SAFE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS THING YOU CAN DO

Companies disappear all the time without a word, due to changing cultural values, changing technology, or changing audience demographics. A series of expensive liability suits were a proximate cause, but the new competitors used technology to pry open a crack in the system. Pay attention to how technology and society are changing and use anthropology techniques to find out what people care most about, but that’s not enough. Are you safe? Or are you on the edge of irrelevance?

Although Kodak had early access to the first digital camera technology, they chose not to develop it as they felt it would kill their own film business.
