Mobility. The cloud. Data analytics. Collaboration. These and related forces are creating a seismic shift felt at all levels of the organization.

An intense and in-depth study conducted across the United States and China reveals the effects of these influences through the eyes of knowledge workers, functional leaders, business decision-makers, and upcoming graduates from prominent universities. The results, together with commentary from leading researchers and analysts, are presented and plumbed in this detailed volume. Informative, enlightening, and possibly prophetic, this analysis illuminates a blueprint for the business model of tomorrow.
