With all the new inventions popping up, it has become a common ordeal to ask just how much each invention would affect the status quo of the world. Artificial Intelligence and Automation, for example, are just two of the recently developed inventions that are revolutionizing the entire world.
Heraclitus saying “There is nothing permanent except change,” is perhaps one of the best ways to describe the world that we live in given the incredibly fast pace that our technology is evolving. More often than not, just as the world is getting used to the latest product, the market is once again bombed with a newer, more updated version. This constant and vicious cycle of change has caused businesses to scramble against the turning tides.
It is in this new inventions that businesses either live or die. Their ability to adapt to the situation and to use these innovations as a tool at their disposal is key to their success. For businesses, it has become a necessity to be responsive to these changes in the industry or suffer losing their edge or worse, getting completely wiped off the map.

Used to be a mega-company that held the entire video rental industry, Blockbuster is now nonexistent, driven to the ground by its own bad decisions. In fact, the move to automate a lot of business processes have opened up hundreds of thousands of data science positions.
Here we have outlined some of the up and coming inventions that we believe are the future of Business management.
