12 cose che ciascuno di noi dovrebbe capire sulla tecnologia.

La tecnologia è in grado di cambiare il nostro modo di vivere, di pensare, e di essere. Siamo pronti ad accettarlo?

Tech is more important than ever, deeply affecting culture, politics and society. Given all the time we spend with our gadgets and apps, it’s essential to understand the principles that determine how tech affects our lives.

Understanding technology today

Technology isn’t an industry, it’s a method of transforming the culture and economics of existing systems and institutions. That can be a little bit hard to understand if we only judge tech as a set of consumer products that we purchase. But tech goes a lot deeper than the phones in our hands, and we must understand some fundamental shifts in society if we’re going to make good decisions about the way tech companies shape our lives—and especially if we want to influence the people who actually make technology.

Even those of us who have been deeply immersed in the tech world for a long time can miss the driving forces that shape its impact. So here, we’ll identify some key principles that can help us understand technology’s place in culture.

Alcuni prerequisiti per adottare l’AI e migliorare la Customer Experience.

Since 2000, we all have seen a parade of technology emerging, which includes mobile technology, browser-based cloud computing, social media, workflow management, journey mapping, Big Data, IoT, and last but not the least Blockchain.

It is typical that at first there is only a fragile relationship between all these technological innovations and CRM’s original mission, but in most cases, over a short time (often by rethinking) CRM comes into the foray that leverages the technological attributes of these global computing inventions.
Therefore, it is natural; we can always think that the next invention of CRM will be Blockchain technology, which is gradually making its way around the back office.
