"Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born.” - Alan Kay

Alan Key’s quote at the start of this paper may not hit one’s core as hard as one that recalls the dangers of neglecting the advancements of technology in business, or the equally dangerous siren’s call of guiding a company to jump into an unproven technology. Yet, it is easy to keep coming back to the same question: what good is technology if we cannot successfully augment it into our businesses and daily lives to help drive collaboration, efficiency and provide a level of visibility that has yet to be realized? Ultimately, technology would provide no value if it cannot deliver that.
