'Decisive New Technology Adoption Leads to Competitive Advantage,' Verizon sponsored Harvard Business Review Analytic Services Survey Confirms - PR Newswire - 53 minutes ago
NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services -- "The Digital Dividend – First Mover Advantage" -- demonstrates that early adoption of new technologies leads to better business outcomes. The study's results show that IT "Pioneers" – companies the study identified as believing strongly in the benefits of adopting new technologies and that pursue "first-mover advantage" -- are more likely to lead in both revenue growth and market position than their peers. This is more than twice the growth experienced by companies identified as technology "Followers" (those that watch and invest once benefits are proven), and three times the growth experienced by "Cautious" technology adopters (those that wait until a technology is well-established). Sponsored by Verizon Enterprise Solutions, the study surveyed 672 business and technology leaders from around the world on the impact of what HBR Analytic Services calls the Big Five technologies – mobile, social, cloud computing, advanced analytics and machine-to-machine communications.
