blog-postIf there's one thing for certain, we're in the midst of a radical shift -- both technologically and socially. The desire for increased insight and connectivity is driving a tech revolution that's producing devices that "talk" to each other, platforms that foster collaboration and data that's never been available before. That newfound knowledge and technology is, in turn, giving the everyday person more power than he/she's ever had before: more purchasing power, more political power, more social power.

What does this mean for our future? How does this shift affect businesses, and how should companies react?

We asked nine enterprise users at SlideShare to share their insights. One thing they all agreed on: If you don't embrace this change, you won't survive  the future.
