By Chuck Hollis

Chuck writes in Forbes, "Business leaders often tell me they feel barraged by technology vendors touting their latest shiny thing as 'disruptive' and 'game changing.' Some technologies, like internet and mobile, did turn out to be powerful forces that transformed how we do business. But other technologies, not so much.

As someone who has worked a full career at the intersection of business and technology, I've learned to be extremely judicious and selective when making my case for a new enterprise technology. And I do what I can to avoid hyping a trend..."
