Disruptions: Truth and consequences

Brian Stewart, Anshuman Khare, Rod Schatz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The range of digital disruption is far broader and deeper than any one volume can cover. For example, some of the industries that need further discussions are robotics, artifi cial intelligence, digital platforms and the role that information management plays in the next wave of business models. The purpose of this book has been to view the impacts of digital technology on a selected group of industries and to provide some guiding frameworks to view potential impacts to allow business leaders to identify and start to deal with the effects of digital disruption. This last chapter does not provide a single narrative summary of the topics covered in this book. It is more a thematic review of the ideas raised combined with an identifi cation of other aspects of digital disruption not directly treated. These include the risks of digital technologies and the enabling capabilities of big data and advanced analytics and the Internet of things. Our intention is to provide brief vignettes of these areas to inform the reader of additional lines of enquiry.
