  • Technological changes
  • # 1 Internet
  • Internet penetration globally Source
  • 700 million more internet users in Asia from 2010 to 2015 Source:
  • More mobile internet users than desktop internet users in 2014 Source:[1].pdf
  • Source
  • It took 20 years to bring the number of fixed Internet users to 2 billion, but only 5 years to bring the number of mobile Internet users to 1 billion. Source
  • # 2 Mobile
  • Source minute 13.
  • Source:[1].pdf
  • Large growth in global mobile traffic Source
  • Source Strong growth in shipments of mobile electronic devices
  • Source
  • Smartphone users in millions Source
  • Source
  • The mobile device will be the primary connection tool to the Internet for most people in the world in 2020. Source
  • We are seeing the emergence of mobile-only companies whose presence is singularly focused on mobile as opposed to the browser based Internet. Examples include Instagram and Uber. Source
  • # 3 Computer power explosion
  • Source The exponential development of computing power is unchanged
  • Computing power doubles every 2 years on a price/performance basis. Today, a $400 iPhone 4 offers roughly equal performance to the CDC 7600 supercomputer, which was the fastest supercomputer in 1975 and cost $5 million at the time. Source p. 43.
  • Due to rapidly advancing technologies that have taken us from dial-up to fiber to the home (FTTH), it has taken a mere 20 years to increase bandwidth by more than 1,000 times. Source
  • # 4 Social
  • Source
  • Social networking
  • Enterprise social networking
  • Filesharing
  • The world’s largest internet companies Million users Source:
  • # 5 Crowdsourcing
  • # 6 Location based services
  • # 7 Cloud computing
  • Source Hype cycle for emerging technologies
  • Concepts Explanation / examples SaaS Software-as-a-Service The largest and most mature part of the cloud. Communication technologies. Example: Google Apps. PaaS Platform-as-a-Service Database. Webserver. Software development tools which allow customers to start writing code quickly. Examples: Java, .NET, Python, Ruby on Rails. IaaS Infrastructure-as-a-Service Servers. Storage. Network. What is cloud computing? Source
  • Source SaaS is likely to penetrate almost all categories of software
  • Characteristic # 1 Customers rent cloud services. IT shifts from a capital expense to an operating expense. Characteristic # 2 Suppliers of cloud services are responsible for maintenance, administration, capacity planning, troubleshooting, and backups. Characteristic # 3 It’s fast and easy to get more from the cloud, for example more storage from an IaaS supplier, the ability to handle more PaaS projects, or more seats for users of a SaaS application. 3 characteristics of cloud services Source
  • Aliyun, Alibaba’s cloud computing arm, operates the largest cloud in China. Source
  • # 8 Internet of things
  • Tiny sensors and actuators, proliferating at astounding rates, are expected to explode in number over the next decade, potentially linking over 50 billion physical entities as costs plummet and networks become more pervasive. Source
  • # 9 Technologies driving education innovation
  • Social networking
  • Filesharing
  • # 10 Technologies driving healthcare innovation
  • Sources
  • # 11 Technologies driving banking innovation
  • # 12 Technologies driving innovation in agriculture
  • 15% of the world in extreme poverty actually represents a big improvement. 50 years ago, about 40% of the global population was poor. Then, in the 1960s and 1970s, in what is called the “Green Revolution,” Norman Borlaug and other researchers created new seed varieties for rice, wheat, and maize (corn) that helped many farmers vastly improve their yields. In some places, like East Asia, food intake went up by as much as 50%. Globally, the price of wheat dropped by 2/3. These changes saved countless lives and helped nations develop. Source
  • Currently, 4 million tons of rice are lost to flooding every year in Bangladesh and India. But as farmers in the region adopt Swarna- Sub1 rice, which is both very productive and can survive in flooded fields, they will grow enough extra rice to feed 30 million people. Source
  • A total of $3 billion per year is spent on researching the 7 most important crops:  USD 1.5 billion are spent by countries.  USD 1.2 billion are spent by private companies.  USD 300 million are spent by an agency called the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).
