High Tech Economics – implications from a global perspective.

Rising pressure on CEOs of (dominant) global IT vendors

The more decades those blue chip IT companies have spent to establish their hugely profitable platform businesses, the more pressure they now seemingly get for risking to lose the technology future.

Either that technology future is so unclear (I guess it’s no less clear than it was in the past) or driven by fundamentally different drivers that these companies cannot understand. May be “understanding” is largely about having the right company incentives to “see” the future – and that is not really something new at all.
