The Internet is the most transformative and disruptive technology since air travel, the radio and television. Disrupting long-standing and successful brick-and-mortar businesses, supply chains and creating an endless stream of new, innovative services, the Internet has swept across markets and society forever changing the way people communicate and the way they transact with each other. And the Internet is still in its early stages. The transformational effect of online services, data, machine-learning and innovation will continue to transform and disrupt how we do business and engage with our customers and stakeholders for years to come.
Today, change truly is the only constant.
How does an organization create and execute a successful strategic vision in the face of such dynamic and seismic shifts in the economy, business and society. How can you understand these forces so that you can deliver on your organization’s goals with confidence? How can you leverage these technologies to drive your organization’s success?
The answer lies combining time tested fundamentals with insights into disruptive technologies and the transformations that they are created for business, consumers, society and government. Few industries are immune to the threat of competition and rapid technological change. That is why the Eastham Group offers disruptive technology consulting services: to help organizations understand and leverage innovative technology to drive business-specific strategic value and competitive advantage. We provide our clients solid fundamentals combined with insights into transformative technologies so they can spot new opportunities, understand and avoid technology “hype” cycles and develop successful business strategies.
While most innovation consulting merely recommends features to improve upon existing business models and services, our disruptive technology consulting services offers strategic direction for when those models are inevitably replaced. This opens the door to new paradigms for delivering business value, often trading existing conceptions of the market for completely new product offerings and services. Building on our forward-thinking business acumen and future-casting theories of innovation, we work with companies in all industries to develop and bring to market disruptive strategies that dramatically change the game for our clients and their customers.
A system in which a cryptographic record of transactions are made and maintained across a decentralized network of computers, Blockchain has the capacity to upend entire industries in the next several decades, as well as bring to market an assortment of services never before possible. We will help your organization realize the broad implications of digital ledgers in your industry and identify potential business-specific applications for its use.
A Digital Identity is an online or networked ’identity’ that represents an individual, organization, application or electronic device in online. Like its physical counterpart, Digital Identities are comprised of data attributes that identify someone or something online. Whether it is a domain name, social media identity, authentication or something else, how you identify your organization or yourself online can determine the effectiveness of your communications and interactions and the success of your business or mission.
Internet Of Things
The ‘Internet of Things’ refers to a network of connected objects having a unique identifier and being able to collect and send data over the Internet. As with many technological innovations, the label can create confusion or a lack of understanding. Simply put the Internet of Things is enabled by the Internet itself and the assignment of unique identifiers to objects (e.g. packages of food, cars, refrigerators etc.) IoT devices can communicate and interact with similar and other devices over the internet, and utilize a variety of embedded systems (wireless sensors, control and automation systems, real-time analytics, machine learning, etc.) to effectively improve their usefulness over time.
We will work with your organization to identify potential opportunities of this unique field of technology and help you develop products, services and strategies that capitalize on IoT services and their many applications.
