Emerging Technologies & Innovation Practice

Sensibly incorporating the latest technology into your environment

The business world and its competitive landscape are constantly changing. Threats and opportunities emerge at any time, from any where at unprecedented speed, often leaving organizations at the mercy of these new market forces. Technology is at the center of this constant change and organizations struggle not only to keep abreast of the latest trends, but also to integrate them into their day-to-day operations in a timely, productive manner.  Competitive advantages derived previously from product differentiation, customer loyalty or lowest cost are not as enduring in today’s fast paced and dynamic marketplace. To compete and sustain an edge over others, organizations must now be designed and built for change.  The organizational structure, operational processes and supporting technologies all need to work in concert to enable a culture of change and innovation. Cornerstone and its senior advisory group can work jointly with business and IT executives to help evaluate emerging technologies and plan for their effective adoption and integration across the enterprise.


Emerging Technologies Filter


  • Not every trend is right for every enterprise.  Sensible evaluation of emerging technologies, and the development of logical plans and roadmaps for their adoption and integration makes business sense.


  • Finding the ‘technology’ needle in the haystack is less daunting when you view emerging technologies through a business lens


Organizations looking to become innovation-friendly must take an end-to-end approach to technology adoption.  There are three strategic business capabilities that underpin an organization that embraces and thrives on change and innovation:   Technology Awareness, Technology Responsiveness and Technology Integration.  Collectively, these capabilities enable organizations to become serial innovators – able to identify and exploit the game changing potential of emerging and disruptive technologies on a consistent and ongoing basis.

  • Technology Awareness involves staying in touch with emerging technologies as they evolve and progress through the development lifecycle. 

  • Technology Responsiveness entails continually assessing and evaluating the business potential and value proposition of emerging technologies for both your business and the markets within which your business competes. 

  • Technology Integration encompasses the seamless adoption and implementation of emerging technologies into day-to-day operations. 

All three business capabilities involve a system of people, processes and tools and all three are essential for enabling an innovation-friendly organization.
