Simple Steps to Get Storytelling on Social Media Right

I recently came out of the Bumblebee movie feeling more satisfied than all the previous Transformers series combined. If the cinematic experience was more epic in the first five movies, why was this little spin-off loved by more moviegoers?

Understanding Emerging Technology Automation

Most discussions about emerging technology tend to focus on the individual technologies that are working their way towards adoption. CompTIA’s research series on emerging tech has featured AI, blockchain, virtual reality/augmented reality and more.

As businesses reconsider how technology impacts their operations and strategies, it is natural for them to concentrate more on the future trends that have potential to be disruptive. The problem comes in finding the resources to dedicate to such an effort.

Few topics were discussed in this paper:

  • Automation
  • Adoption Patterns
  • Benefits of Adoption
  • Challenges
