How-to guidance for optimizing incumbent technologies to deliver a better product and gain competitive advantage

Their zip codes are far from Silicon Valley. Their SIC codes show retail, automobile or banking. But industry after industry is waking up to the opportunity of "smart" products and services for their increasingly tech-savvy customers. Traditionally technology buyers, they are learning to embed technology in their products and become technology vendors. In turn, if you analyze Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and eBay, you marvel at their data centers, retail stores, application ecosystems, global supply chains, design shops. They are considered "consumer" tech but have better technology at larger scale than most enterprises. The old delineation of technology buyer and vendor is obsolete. There is a new definition for the technology elite - and you find them across industries and geographies. The 17 case studies and 4 guest columns spread through "The New Technology Elite" bring out the elite attributes in detail. Every organization will increasingly be benchmarked against these elite - and soon will be competing against them.Contrasts the productivity that Apple, Google and others have demonstrated in the last decade to that of the average enterprise technology groupReveals how to leverage what companies have learned from Google, Apple,, and Facebook to your company's advantageDesigned for business practitioners, CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, technology vendors, venture capitalists, IT consultants, marketing executives, and policy makersOther titles by Vinnie Mirchandani: "The New Polymath: Profiles in Compound-Technology Innovations"
