Bestselling Author Randy Gage Reveals Top 7 Disruptive Trends for Business in 2013

MIAMI, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In his new bestseller, Risky Is the New Safe, prosperity expert Randy Gage explores cataclysmic changes shaping business, technology and society. Now Gage unveils the "Top 7 Disruptive Trends" that will make "chaos the new calm" in 2013.

"In the areas of marketing, management, and leadership, there will be more disruptive change in the next 10 years than occurred in the last thousand, and 2013 will provide some serious clues on where it all is going," Gage says. Here are his predictions to help businesses and entrepreneurs adapt and prosper.

7. Shopping Goes Virtual –  "Virtual malls" led by QR stores at locations where people with smart phones congregate will be the new prime real estate for online shopping.

6. The Printer Strikes Back – Advances in 3-D printing will bring cataclysmic upheaval in manufacturing. The impact will cascade down into distribution, fulfillment and other support industries.

5. TabletMania – Look for a big spike in eBooks, eMagazines and other publications that are easy to read on tablets. Video programming for tablets is ripe for entrepreneurial development.

4. Mobile Wallets will eventually replace credit cards, debit cards, currencies, and even banks. Whoever gets a leg up in 2013 gets a big head start.

3. "I Want My Streaming TV" – The battle over who controls streaming video promises to be the biggest fight in the next decade. The winner of that war may be decided by who controls the TV platform.

2. UnSocial Media – Bad companies lament "consumer activism" as irate customers expose their glaring weaknesses. Savvy companies will learn how to better use social media to connect with their tribes and monitor their brand in real time.

1. Mobile App-ocalypse – Mobile apps and the cloud will change marketing more than direct mail, newspapers, radio, television, and the Internet combined. Everybody's talking about Big Data, but look for consumers to turn the tables. We'll see apps coming out using it against companies to get better selection and lower prices.

"This next decade will rearrange the power structure in hundreds of industries and professions," Gage says. "And the first movers who get in front in 2013 stand the best chance of success."

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data.

I write and study often on the subject of digital transformation - the digital transformation of industries, markets, products, business models, etc. In brief, digital transformation is about the impact that collected and analyzed data can have when used to enhance business processes and workflows. If Amazon knows your preferences for particular books and films based upon captured data, then they can apply analytics to predict related books and films that you may like. This improves sales. T...
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, will discuss the real...
