opportunity network – The Networks Economy and the Fourth Industrial Revolution
WEF’s Founder, Klaus Schwab, defined the Fourth Industrial Revolution as the transformation of humankind led by technological innovations in the physical, digital, and biological spheres. Where can we see most of its economic and social value being created today? Networks. In this context, the recent decision by Microsoft to buy LinkedIn is a strategic choice made to have a voice amongst the Facebooks, given the fact that economic value and competitive advantage is now generated by networks.
