In my latest column at Forbes, I lay out six technological megatrends that will transform every information-intensive industry over the next five to ten years.
These industries are up for “reimagination,” to use a term popularized by Mary Meeker, the Kleiner Perkins venture capitalist. That’s because, as the following figure shows, the exponential progression of these technologies will create openings for new killer apps that overwhelm incremental business change. Huge market share and market value are being thrown up for grabs. By Meeker’s estimate, the market value of just the top 10 information-intensive industries is more than $36 trillion.
