The 100 Most Disruptive Companies to Watch In 2021

#artificialintelligence

Disruptive technology is the technology that affects the normal operation of a market or an industry. Digital disruption entails established companies and start-ups alike enlisting new technologies in the fight to dislodge incumbents, protect entrenched positions, or to re-invent entire industries and business activities. And to remain disruptive in the market, it is really important to keep innovating. This is crucial because, innovations occur now and then in every industry, however, to be truly disruptive, and innovation must entirely transform a product or solution that historically was so complicated only a few could access it. On a minimum level, digital transformation enables an organization to address the needs of its customers more simply and directly. But through disruptive innovation, companies can offer a far better way to users of doing things that current incumbents simply cannot compete with. Artificial intelligence (AI), E-Commerce, cloud, social networking, Internet of Things, 5G, blockchain and other emerging technologies are being leveraged to blur the lines between industries, creating new business models and converging sectors. A company that disrupts its market is in a great position to take advantage of new opportunities. Sometimes offering something different can change the whole market for the better. Most of the top disruptive companies get this label by offering highly innovative products and services and here are 100 such top disruptive companies listed below.

Microsoft's cloud focus could mean yet more layoffs

Engadget

Microsoft is going through another reorganization that could result in "thousands" of layoffs, particularly to its sales force, according to TechCrunch, Bloomberg and others. The company is reportedly shifting teams around to emphasize Azure cloud sales, rather than boxed software, which is rapidly becoming a dying business. So far, there's no news on exactly which groups and regions will be affected. There's also no word on how this affects Microsoft's Surface division, which has seen solid growth until early this year, when sales dropped by 26 percent. However, Microsoft chalked that up to increased competition and its aging lineup of devices.
