If you look at Yahoo or Hoover’s industry sector list and then analyse emerging technology trends, it is obvious that most of these new technologies cuts across industries, sectors and domains. Interestingly, this kind of cohesion is not driven by conglomerates like GE or P&G, but by much smaller companies that use technology as a framework to switch between industry sectors and geographies seamlessly. As a result, technology brings a new dimension to building and scaling businesses. For instance, the possibility that a gaming company like Rovio or Zynga could potentially challenge gaming giants like Sony, Nintendo or Electronic Arts would have been unfathomable a few years ago.
