Future of Networked Commerce: Changing How the World Interacts

May 8, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Networks.

Over the past 20 years, networks such as B2B, B2C, mobile technology, exchanges, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter have changed how we interact personally and commercially with the world.

This Network Economy, aka the next global economic revolution, is accelerated by the convergence of social connectivity, device-to-device connectivity, and business-to-business connectivity and collaboration.

This raises many questions. Are we already nearing the peak – or just scratching the surface – of leveraging networks to drive speed, volume, and value in electronic commerce? Are nascent or new, yet-unborn networks on the horizon?

The experts speak.
