Mainframe to PC
We’re all familiar with how computing went from monument to desk. We’re doing the same with knowledge teams.
Each year, companies spend billions of dollars hiring knowledge vendors from consultants to university research teams, each contract worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is a VP+ level activity because of the cost. Many times the cost is justified, but many times it’s a premium paid for convenience or inefficiency.
We’re making it possible for anyone to build knowledge teams in any topic from their desk for $3,000. These teams operate from resource rich ecosystems. They not only bring in fresh insight but also credibility that can be trusted and acted upon.
Companies will need to find new revenue opportunities faster than before as existing streams dry up from nimble competition. The need to empower everyone in the organization to uncover insights will be an important first step in that effort.
