    • Organizations must be able to transform as markets, economic environments, and technologies change
    • Focusing on the unexpected allows an organization to capitalize on the opportunity for new business growth from a disruptive technology
  • Disruptive Versus Sustaining Technology
    • Internet penetration by world region
  • Disruptive Versus Sustaining Technology
    • World Internet Users
  • Evolution of the Internet
    • The Internet began as an emergency military communications system operated by the Department of Defense
    • Gradually the Internet moved from a military pipeline to a communication tool for scientists to businesses
      • Internet – computer networks that pass information from one to another using common computer protocols
      • Protocol – standards that specify the format of data as well as the rules to be followed during transmission
  • Evolution of The World Wide Web
    • World Wide Web (WWW) – a global hypertext system that uses the Internet as its transport mechanism
    • Hypertext transport protocol (HTTP) – the Internet standard that supports the exchange of information on the WWW
  • Evolution of The World Wide Web
  • Evolution of the World Wide Web
    • The Internet’s impact on information
      • Easy to compile
      • Increased richness
      • Increased reach
      • Improved content
  • Evolution of The World Wide Web
    • File formats offered over the WWW
  • Evolution of The World Wide Web
    • The Internet makes it possible to perform business in ways not previously imaginable
    • It can also cause a digital divide
      • Digital divide – when those with access to technology have great advantages over those without access to technology
  • WEB 2.0
    • Web 2.0 - a set of economic, social, and technology trends that collectively form the basis for the next generation of the Internet
  • WEB 2.0 Timeline of Web 1.0
  • THE FUTURE – WEB 3.0

    • Obtaining the first-mover advantage is critical to any business that wants to compete in the Internet economy
    • However, gaining a first-mover advantage is typically temporary, and without remaining innovative the company can soon fail
  • Chapter Thirteen Case Questions
    • If these companies all had a first-mover advantage, then why did the products fail?
    • For each of the above determine if the technology used was disruptive or sustaining.
    • Choose one of the products above and determine what the company could have done to prevent the product from failing.
    • Can you name another technology product that failed? Why did it fail? What could the company have done differently for it to succeed?
