A Look at Global IT Economics: Understanding IT Innovations of the Past, Present and Future

Today’s world represents a massive global network of technological advancements, and because of it, millions of digital services and products are available to essentially everyone. The technological boom of the mid to late 1990’s is now 20 years behind us, and even iconic brands like Google are older than those now attending high schools across the U.S.

All of the “digitized” things that make our lives so much easier – eCommerce, email, online banking, 4G / 5G networks and instant communications – are incredibly complex. This infrastructure has been built by many intelligence and dedicated people, for many years, now. But as we all know, time is money. Just how much time and money, though, are flowing through the technology industry to continue innovation on such a massive scale?
