Enterprise software has come a long way. In the beginning, it was the purview of a select, exclusive group. Running on mainframe computers and accessed through green-screen terminals, software had an almost mystical quality to it—those applications were few and far in between. Fast forward through the client-server, web, mobile, and IoT eras and software has become much, much more abundant. Indeed, software is “eating the world,” to quote Marc Andreessen.
- By 2017, enterprises making decisions controlled by differentiated algorithms will achieve a 5% to 10% increase in revenue

- By 2020, poor customer experiences will destroy 30% of digital business projects.

Most of us are now aware of the transformation Tesla Motors is bringing about in the automobile Industry. To some, what Elon Musk has achieved for automobiles probably goes beyond what Steve Jobs did for computers and mobile phones.
Today, as we look around, electric cars are still a small/tiny fraction of the total automobile industry sales. And many skeptics continue to argue that Tesla is just too high priced and does not have the production capability to attain mass market status in the near future. Well, all of that may be true, for now, but look at how rapidly the perception about electric cars has changed, all thanks to Elon Musk and Tesla.
As we review the pace of technology advancement and disruption, it is safe to say that five years is the new decade when it comes to technology adoption, speed of innovation, transformation and disruption. Consider, for example, what Tesla was five years back as well as the iPad that was launched in the last five years or so and how much of an impact these developments have had. Going beyond the tablet/computer industry, the iPad has transformed entire sectors like retail, media, healthcare, and education, to name a few. It has touched upon nearly every aspect of a typical person’s life.
So if we go by the pace of the last five years and factor in that every five years, the rate of change is only going to accelerate…the predictions, especially, for the automobile industry become pretty radical.
