Britt Technology Impact Series: Technology

The Britt Technology Impact Series (BTIS) provides MBA candidates and the Tuck and Dartmouth communities with insights into how changes in technology affect individuals, impact enterprises and reshape industries. The series explores a different theme each academic year through events including panel discussions with industry leaders, one-on-one meetings with executives and academic seminars. At year-end, the center produces an overview of the findings that gives students unique perspectives on relevant business and technology issues. This program is made possible by a generous donation from Glenn Britt T'72, former Chairman & CEO of Time Warner Cable. The 2015-16 BTIS is examining the radical transformation that technology is having on business models in a series titled, Business Model (R)Evolution: The Age of Digital Transformation.

Past series: the hyperweb, the internet of thingsbig data, cloud computing, social technology, mobility, video and web 2.0.

Current Series: Connected Everywhere: The Transformation to a Hyperweb World

Over the past six years, the Center for Digital Strategies has examined six major technology trends and how they impact individuals, businesses, and industries. Video, Mobile, Social, Cloud, Big Data and the Internet of Things have all proven to play a significant role in shaping the way we all see and interact with the world through digital technology. We are now facing a perfect storm where these technologies are coming together to change the world in previously unimaginable ways. Making this coming together possible is the concept of a Hyperweb that focuses not on singular technology, but on the linking between all of their technologies. This technological convergence is made possible by APIs, HTML5, and other developments and has given rise to new industries, made some companies into winners (often at the expense of others), and opened up new frontiers. The 2014-15 Britt Technology Impact Series examined the transformational impact of the growing hyperweb and the fusion of technology into every interaction in our corporate and social worlds.
