Publisher's Summary

A big-picture look at how the latest trends in information management and technology are impacting business models and innovation worldwide...
With all of the recent emphasis on "big data", analytics and visualization, and emerging technology architectures such as smartphone networks, social media, and cloud computing, the way we do business is undergoing rapid change. The right business model can create overnight sensations - think of Groupon, the iPad, or Facebook. At the same time, alternative models for organizing resources such as home schooling, Linux, or Kenya's Ushihidi tool transcend conventional business designs.
Timely and visionary, Information, Technology, and Innovation looks at how the latest technology trends and their impact on human behavior are impacting business practices from recruitment through marketing, supply chains, and customer service.

Discusses information economics, human behavior, technology platforms, and other facts of contemporary life
Examines how humans organize resources and do work in the changing landscape
Provides case studies profiling how competitive advantage can be a direct result of innovative business models that exploit these trends
Revealing why traditional strategy formulation is challenged by the realities of the connected world, Information, Technology, and Innovation ties technology to business and social environments in an approachable, informed manner with innovative, big-picture analysis of what's taking place now in information strategy and technology.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Today, the IT world changes at the speed of light. Today's headlines are obsolete by the weekend. Books are usually stale by the time they hit the shelves of a bookstore.

As an IT Professions on the cutting edge of the industry, I hear about many new services and technologies long before they become public. So I personally found the book as a recap of what has happened in the industry over the past 8 years..

Someone that is not in the IT industry may still find this informative useful, but I would not recommend it to anyone to anyone already in the IT field. You'll be reading about the work the work that the guy you replaced 2 years ago did before he was outsourced.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I found it a bit dated.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narrator was fine

What did you take away from Information, Technology, and Innovation that you can apply to your work?

Nothing. The information presented is common knowledge in the IT industry. It's on the edge of becoming old news.

Any additional comments?

Book is geared toward someone that is not currently involved with the IT industry. By the time something gets printed on paper and is put on a bookshelf for sale, it will be yesterday's news.

Fantastically stimulating and well argued

If you could sum up Information, Technology, and Innovation in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant, Stimulating, Important

What other book might you compare Information, Technology, and Innovation to and why?

The Master Switch, Tim Wu. Understanding the empirical realities of the technologies that so powerfully impact our lives and the hegemony that controls it is am important concern. Each of these books fills in important aspects of that domain/

What about James Lewis’s performance did you like?

It was appropriate and easy to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too meaty to listen to in one sitting.
