|Social, mobile, cloud and big data: knowledge as a product|
|By Aaron Kim|
|As your organization starts rolling out initiatives on the big IT trends of social, mobile, cloud, and big data, employees often get caught in the eye of the storm. Seeing how complex it is to actually realize the vision that looked so great in PowerPoint, they may get discouraged and wonder why everybody is doing that.

Not long ago, office life was 9 to 5, email was manageable and easy to understand, job roles were clear, small data was safely stored in the hard drive of our desk, and social was about what happened after 5 pm.

Chances are that you are connected in one network or another to people in at least 12 other countries. Although social networking and smartphones are relatively new as a staple in the everyday life of adults and kids, how we as consumers use these networks and devices is outpacing how we as employees use technology in the workplace. Over time, how we make decisions as [...]
